Rudy of Antigua Daily Photo posted about Antigua coffee beans on June 8. Even though they produce it, at $6 a pound, most Antiguans cannot afford to buy it. I’m not a coffee drinker, but today out of curiosity I went to a local coffee shop which sells beans from around the world and discovered that Antigua coffee beans are selling there for $11.50 a pound (bottom row, second jar from the left).
Sounds great! I am a coffee fan.
I’m a coffe addict but never tasted (yet!) from Antigua.
the price is 16€/kg where i usually buy my coffe
Wow, Guatemalan coffee is always very cheap at Whole Foods. I was just commenting the other day how it’s always the cheapest variety…which means I always buy it! It’s usually about 8.99/lb.
Guatemalan coffee is very varied. (Pardon my gramar and composition, but I dont practice english very much) It depends on the altitude and the microclimate of each region where coffee is grown. Guatemala has several altitudes and micro regions where coffee is grown. Thats why you can have cheap coffee (normaly lower quality) and you have very fine coffees like Antigua and Huehuetenango. (Very diferent). Antigua is one of the most reknown coffee.
One of the deficiencies of Guatemalan coffee has been its marketing, although now big efforts are being done, coffees with not so special and unique qualitiy, characteristics and flavors are best none and paid world wide.
If you would like to know more about it I would be glad to answer.
