Guatemala by Café Royal
Guatemala by Café Royal makes mild and light-bodied espresso with a combination of caramel sweetness, touch of cocoa and hints of fruitiness both on the nose and on the palate.
The mild aroma of this Guatemala capsules brings with it cereals, caramel, cocoa and fruity sweetness of cascara (the coffee cherry flesh).
This espresso has a light body and offers subtle notes of creamy-toffee sweetness, cocoa bitterness and red apple acidity.
Fast and steady extraction provides a good amount of crema.
The elegantly decorated box contains brightly coloured plastic-and-aluminium capsules. Due to this combination of materials, capsules are hard to recycle. Café Royal describes these capsules as coffee with fine cocoa notes and elegant, fruity acidity. The intensity rating is 5 out of 10.
In this single-origin edition, Café Royal offers a very mild espresso which provides only a glimpse into the qualities of Guatemalan coffee.
