Torque Coffees
Dark Drop

Roaster Location: Flag of United States Vancouver, Washington


Bean Source Country: Guatemala
Bean Source Region: Huehuetenango

Like being a Goth teenager with all the energy of youth mixed with the wisdom of some years of true darkness. A bag of beautiful darkness. Sometimes in life you have to embrace the chaos and run with the darkness. That was the case with this coffee. Nanelle set out to roast the Diamante, Hoja Blanca Guatemala and she got distracted by a black cat walking by and the roast got away from her and went into the realm of darkness. So we pulled the batch aside, but decided to go ahead and cup it. And oh my how sweet the darkness IS!!! It is freaking delicious! Its got plenty of oomph and bass, but the sweet high notes aren't burnt or flat. It's a ridiculously sweet dark chocolate candied apple party in your mouth. No bitterness, not burnt, just enough warmly developed muscovado like sugars and a glorious mouthfeel. So to us its darkish, but to you its just freaking SWEET!! Grab a few bags now. You want this coffee.

More Details

Bean Source Country: Guatemala
Guatemala is one of the main coffee-producing countries in Central America. Its volcanic soil and altitude make it ideal for producing quality arabica.
Coffee in Guatemala is grown in the high-altitude regions of the country. The country is known for producing high-quality Arabica beans, known for their well-balanced, rich, and complex flavors with notes of chocolate, fruit, and nuts with great acidity. The volcanic soil and favorable climate conditions contribute to the unique taste profile of Guatemalan coffee. The coffee industry is a significant part of the country's economy, with small-scale farmers and cooperatives being the primary producers. Guatemala represents around 2% of the world's coffee production, but due to its reputation for high quality, has an outsized impact in specialty roasts.
Bean Source Region: Huehuetenango
Specialty coffee from Huehuetenango, a region in the highlands of Guatemala, is renowned for its unique flavor profile, characterized by a complex blend of fruity, floral, and citrus notes, often complemented by a mild, chocolatey undertone. Grown at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 2,000 meters above sea level, the beans benefit from the area's microclimates, well-drained soil, and cool temperatures, which contribute to the slow maturation of the coffee cherries. Huehuetenango coffee is a favorite among connoisseurs and frequently scores high in specialty coffee cuppings.
