Guatemalan coffee has a lovely flavor profile that makes it a morning delight.
It has a fruity taste and floral aroma that provides a sweet wake-up call - making a lasting impression on your mood for the rest of the day. Drink it with a dark chocolate pastry or cinnamon bun, and you have the ultimate breakfast pairing.
But what’s the best way to prepare Guatemala coffee? Are there specific ways to make the most of freshly roasted Guatemalan coffee beans?
Below are some of our suggestions for Guatemalan coffee drinks to make in the morning.
1. Traditional Guatemala Coffee
Guatemala produces some of the most sought-after coffee in the world, primarily because of the Guatemala coffee production process.
The coffee beans are grown in the volcanic soil surrounding the colonial town of Antigua, which gives Guatemala coffee its sweet, rich, and endearing flavor profile. In fact, many Guatemalans don’t add much to their coffee to spruce it up because the flavor profile is already so flavorful!
Add a simple splash of cream and teaspoon of sugar to a fresh cup of Guatemala coffee, and you’re good to go.
2. Guatemalan Speciality Iced Coffee
The demand for iced coffee is on the rise with no signs of slowing down - a recent report by a major coffee chain found that iced coffee drinks amounted to 74% of their sales in the U.S. in Q3 of 2021, which is 10% higher than the last two years.
So why not make an iced latte with your Guatemala coffee?
Just brew your coffee in advance so it has time to chill before making your drink.
- To create an iced latte, pour your favorite flavoring syrup into your cup.
- Next, fill your cup with ice.
- Pour in your coffee and top it off with cold milk.
- You can use a milk frother to create cold foam for a fancy iced coffee drink.
3. Guatemalan Pumpkin Spice Coffee
When it comes to pumpkin spice, you either love it or hate it. If you’re a fan, you may prefer pumpkin spiced lattes during the fall, or maybe you can drink the stuff year-round.
Regardless of how you feel about the popular seasonal flavor, we recommend giving this pumpkin spice Guatemala coffee by lifestyle blogger Julie Hoag a taste.
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
- 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup of Guatemala coffee
For the best results, we recommend using drip coffee pouches or a drip coffee maker to brew your Guatemala coffee. This will provide the freshest taste. Once your coffee is ready, set it aside, then mix the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and cinnamon sugar in a small bowl. Pour the mixture into your coffee, and finish with whipping cream. Stir and enjoy!
4. Guatemalan Coffee Cooler
If you’re looking for a fun coffee drink to enjoy on vacation or brunch with friends, we recommend this alcoholic coffee cooler by the Intoxicologist:
- 1/2 ounce rum
- 1 ounce salted caramel coffee liqueur
- 1 ounce fresh coffee, chilled
- 1/4 ounce allspice dram
