I stopped by La Caféothèque and asked the salesman, Pierre, for a coffee bean that produces a flavor that lies on the spectrum between strong and mild. He thought for a moment and then recommended Finca Tzámpetey, an estate coffee from Guatemala.

I took home a 250-gram bag of whole-bean coffee, ground some in my coffee grinder, and brewed it in a French press. Upon grinding, it released an intriguing aroma of barbecued potato chips. A hearty coffee with spicy notes, and a slightly sweet, full-bodied taste with little bitterness, it is to be savored and enjoyed!
