The Williams coffee story
Williams signature coffee is a blend of premium beans from Kenya, Guatemala, Brazil and Columbia. These countries are widely recognized for producing some of the world’s best coffee. Each region feaures its own particular characteristics: Kenya is famous for its brightness and acidity. Coffee from Guatemala, more specifically the Antigua region, is known for its unique combination of fruitiness and smokiness. Brazil is considered a staple for quality blends with its full body and overall balance and Columbia is likely the most recognized coffee growing region in the world due to its soil and climate conditions which result in above average body and good acidity. Williams has brought the best of these four growing regions together to make our signature blend. It is a medium roast coffee with a smooth and balanced flavour, body and aroma.
