A caramel apple in your cup! We’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share this special Guatemalan roast with you, our first new coffee of the decade. Rich, creamy notes of butterscotch and caramel apple give this cup its “wow” factor, along with a light lemony meringue on the front and smooth, milk chocolate in the finish. Appropriately named for the dawn, Herkimer Coffee’s Guatemala La Aurora is the perfect way to ring in a new year of better mornings.
For all of us in North America, winter brings Guatemalan coffees into season, and this is one fresh lot we can’t get enough of. Herkimer has a direct relationship with Victor Calderon, the great great grandson of a coffee-growing family since 1885 (really!). La Pia is certified by the Guatemalan Institute for Forest Protection, and his forested slopes are registered as a natural reserve. These beans are grown among avocado and native pines, a natural way to provide shade and nutrient biodiversity to coffee plants. The result is a roast with layers of sugary flavor, and a balanced profile of fruit, chocolate, and caramel that characterizes the finest Guatemalan coffees.
A new year of coffee is upon us! Embrace the dawn with the rich, butterscotch flavor of La Aurora, Herkimer’s fresh new Guatemalan and our current favorite. It’ll be the caramel apple of your mug—and the apple of your eye. Reserve a bag of Guatemala La Aurora today, and kick off a year of better mornings for yourself, or someone you love.
