Red Coffee Cherries at Calusa Coffee Roasters in Fort Lauderdale

We have added new coffee to our lineup. Its a single origin coffee from Guatemala and comes from the area surrounding Antigua. The famous ancient city of Antigua contains over 43 churches, so it is not surprise that this special coffee gets the brand “Iglesias”. Antigua Iglesias comes from the Plantation Santo Tomas and El Vallecito. Both are located in Ciudad Vieja in the state of Sacatepéquez at the slopes of the Volcano Agua.

The coffee grows under Gravilea trees in rich volcanic soil. After harvest, the coffee is brought to the famous mill, Concepcion Escuintla. During the coffee’s time at Concepcion, it is sundried on patios, separated by size, density, and color. The result is a superior coffee with extreme complexities.

Its a fully washed coffee that’s grown at an altitude between 4700 and 4900 feet and comes from the a coffee plant combination of Bourbon, Catuai and Caturra.

We will be offering in both 12oz and 1lb size and also, on occasion, at our shop for the V60, Aeropress or French Press
