Guatemala Casi Cielo, Back for a Limited-Time

Guatemala Casi Cielo, Back for a Limited-Time

Returning for its 10th season is Guatemala Casi Cielo® coffee, meaning “almost heaven,” a rich and elegant coffee with smooth, balancing lemony acidity and hints of dark cocoa. The coffees that make up Guatemala Casi Cielo® were selected from the Antigua region of Guatemala because they deliver the finest the region has to offer.

The Antigua Valley is one of the most renowned areas in the world for production of high-quality coffee. At altitudes above 1,525 meters, coffee trees produce dense beans with a remarkable complexity. Floral aromas, lemony flourishes and deep dark cocoa notes combine to create a smooth, versatile brew that pairs with the entire meal, from savory herb dishes to rich chocolate desserts, caramel, apples and artisanal cheeses. Ideal for espresso, coffee press or automatic brewer. This coffee is available for a limited-time in whole bean, K-Cup® packs and Verismo™ pods at participating Starbucks® retail stores and at Starbucksstore.com.
