Complex flavor, notes of chocolate, caramel and honey
In Guatemala, coffee grows in unspoiled mountain areas, where agriculture respects biodiversity and preserves soil richness. The chill of the altitude is tempered by warm Mexican winds, and coffee plants can be grown at up to 2000 m.
This coffee has an intense fragrance and a distinctive sweetness combined with a rich assortment of aromas including notes of chocolate, caramel, citrus fruits and honey.
Our Monoarabica’s are very carefully selected varieties of coffee. They are reference points that enable coffee lovers to take a journey of discovery, exploring the characteristics of the singular illy blend through the 9 individual Arabica coffees that are used to create it.
These coffees have very specific attributes, but because they are natural products, their characteristics can vary with each harvest, due to climatic and environmental factors. This means we have to constantly monitor and evaluate all the coffee we select. The beans that make up each Monoarabica are only selected by illy when their sensorial profile satisfies our expectations and they meet the high quality standards illy is famous for.
The processes of harvesting and production are subject to seasonal conditions that are very different to the rhythms of industrial production. This means that the current availability of some of the products may be limited, possibly for long periods
