Drink of the Week: Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. Guatemala Tesoro de Concepcion

We drink a lot of coffee at the Imbibe office, and today’s Drink of the Week is one of our favorites of the moment—the Tesoro de Concepcion from Olympia Coffee Roasting. Grown high in the foothills above Huehuetenango, Guatemala, the coffee cherries for this microlot ripen slower than others in the region, resulting in elevated levels of sweetness and acidity and concentrated flavors of melon, strawberries and a a kiss of milky-caramel goodness. It’s delicious brewed hot or cold, served with cream or without, as espresso or a single brewed cup, making it just the bean to keep an entire office of coffee drinkers happily buzzing away. $15.27/12 oz., olympiacoffee.com
