Coffees from Guji are a favorite with the Tala Team. At a glance, they tend to be deeply saturdated with sweetness that we love. Let’s get nerdy on why that is! That richness is usually tied to the very high altitude at which they are grown. When coffees are grown at higher elevations it slows down the growing process which allows for more and more carbohydrates and sugars to be tightly packed into each bean. This will translate into more potential of caramelization and breakdown of those molecules which leads to more sweetness, more flavor, and more complexity of flavor in the resulting cup of coffee.
