Chimaltenango is a high altitude city just north-west of Antigua, where soaring altitudes of up to 2,000 meters above sea level, along with a dynamic microclimate make for ideal growing conditions for coffee. In communities like San Jose Poaquil, just in the north of Chimaltenango, it's not uncommon to see every home with their own crops of coffee shrubs growing. 

This lot is a community effort, combining coffees from smallholder farmers, sorted for quality, into a final lot that is emblematic of the region. Primarily the Typica varietal (which locals call "gigante" due to the large size of the beans), there is also a bit of Bourbon and Caturra cultivation. 

In the cup, things are intensely sugary, with notes of date and brown sugar syrup. The coffee is balanced beautifully with notes of black cherry and red apple.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?


First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
