Monterrico beans are sourced from the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, which is one of the most prized coffee growing regions of the country.
Huehuetenango is located in the northwest of the country at the foot of the Cuchumatanes mountain range, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America. The high elevations (eclipsing 6,000 feet above sea level) ensure that the coffee beans ripen slowly, resulting in a denser and harder bean which is imperative for creating a robust dark roast. Our Monterrico Dark roast has been toasted to deep carmelization, allowing the oils to migrate, and expanding the bean to release its naturally sweet, dark chocolate tones.
Savor the rich flavor of Monterrico with chocolate desserts, such as cake, brownies and dark chocolate squares.
