About this coffee

Coffee story

Nestled between three massive volcanoes at an elevation of 5,000 feet, the Antigua Valley of Guatemala produces arguably the world's finest coffee. Only here does the heirloom variety of Arabica bean known as Borbón develop such a sublimely sweet coffee fruit, with the dry climate stressing trees just enough to give the beans their tantalizingly complex flavors. Among coffee appellations, Antigua is perhaps the best of the best.

One estate in this renowned region stands out above all others, both for its quality and care: Finca San Sebastián. Early sun, upper slopes, an abundance of shaded Borbón—everything about this farm is perfect for producing coffee of consistently superlative quality.

Environmental stewardship and community support is integral to Finca San Sebastián’s operations. In addition to implementing practices that care for the land and workers, the farm houses and funds a local school that educates more than 100 children each year; we contribute to this work with every pound we purchase.

We buy beans from many of the great Antigua farms, and they shine in our most superb blends. But our single-origin offering could only be San Sebastián. It achieves the remarkable feat of tasting both potent and refined, with aromatic grace and shades of the best bittersweet chocolate, all while supporting people and the environment.

I fell in love with this coffee after the first cup. I got some friends hooked on this one as well. You won't be disappointed if you want to try something new. This has been one of my go to coffees the past couple of years.

Wow, Guatemala San Sebastian is one delicious coffee. For those who cherish the close relationship between coffee and cacao and prefer their coffee unsweetened, this is your ideal choice. Excellent flavor at any drinking temperature. Cold-brew it in your French press overnight...wake up to pure pleasure.

Once I tried this coffee I was hooked. The coffee has a smooth, nutty taste without the bitter aftertaste I promise you will be hooked after one cup. If you drink your coffee with cream and sugar then this brand is for you

Wonderful cuppa Joe! Very smooth, not bitter. Brewing method: I use a French press, adding 7 tbsp freshly ground coffee to 18oz (200F filtered water) with a brew time of 4 min. AWESOME!!!

Love Love Love Guatemala San Sebastian. It is one of my go to coffees!! I love the spiciness and the smoothness of the coffee.

It is a wonderful summer coffee because it is not to heavy, but then not to light. It is the perfect warm weather coffee. I take it home as often as possible.
