Albuquerque's local coffee chain, Satellite Coffee, has some of the best coffee I've ever had.

Satellite Coffee has introduced its newest coffee, a full bodied, Rain Forest Alliance Verified, Guatemala single origin roast from Finca Vizcaya. Finca Vizcaya is a relatively small, respected plantation in southern Guatemala famous for its beans used in espresso blends in Europe. At an altitude from 1400 to 1700 meters above sea level on mainly clay soil, beautiful Bourbon, Tipica, Pache and Caturra shrubs grow and harness prized coffee beans that are late harvested, processed and sun-dried. This plantation has participated in Cup of Excellence competitions and production ranges from 10-15 lots per year.

Juan Lopez, Satellite Coffee’s Roast Master with 30 years of industry experience, has perfectly nurtured the full body, bright citrus notes and a remarkable toffee candy finish of the bean. Juan says he chose this bean for “its rich and interesting big bold flavors and its exceptional finish.”

Satellite Coffee hand selects and buys beans in small lots based on seasonal availability. Customers are delighted by the seasonal single origin beans and skillfully micro-roasted blends.

Satellite Coffee is a New Mexico based specialty coffee and fresh casual concept founded in 1998. The award winning concept has achieved local recognition for its blend of micro-roasted coffee beans and unique drinks. Each of Satellite’s 8 company owned locations offer an outpost of stylized comfort, friendly and knowledgeable baristas blended with personal touches and community involvement. Satellite Coffee was recently named “Best Cup of Coffee” by readers of The Weekly Alibi. Visit http://www.satellitecoffee.com for more information. Franchise opportunities are available in select markets.
