WHY OUR BREAD IS THE BEST

Posted in OUR BREAD IS THE BEST on 03.06.10 by Merlyn

All our breads are homemade. The difference between our bread and the bread you find at  supermarkets or bakeries is enormous.  The bread you buy at supermarkets or  bakeries has the texture and substance that can be made on an industrial scale and not grow “old” on the shelf at the store. The industrial scale process is designed to maximize profit while still producing an edible product. This is done by using an excessive amount of yeast in order to create lots of air bubbles in the bread, hence the “light texture of store purchased bread. It also allows for the use of lower-quality grains because of this yeast abundance. Therefore, the bread is far from nutrient-rich.  Our bread on the other hand is made to order, using no preservatives, and containing fresh and high quality ingredients. In addition, some of the ingredients that we use are imported directly from Guatemala. When you buy our bread you will notice the difference in flavor, color, and texture immediately.

CHOOSING OUR NAME AND LOGO

Posted in CHOOSING OUR NAME AND LOGO on 03.06.10 by Merlyn

 

 

Since Antigua Flavors and Colors” was created to bring awareness of the Flavors and Colors from Guatemala’s rich colonial and Mayan cultural traditions, we wanted to create a logo that would represent this.   

AntiguaGuatemala is a city of charm and color. It is perhaps the most outstanding colonial city in Spanish America. Every year tourists from around the world visit Antigua Guatemala to enjoy its natural beauty and historic monuments. The Spanish Colonial style is evident in every part of the town.   Other than it’s architecture, Antigua’s cuisine offers  pleasing flavors that are an example of Mayan traditions .  Therefore the inspiration for this websites name and logo could only be found in Antigua Guatemala.

Choosing the name is evident Antigua F lavors and C olors.

Choosing the logo was a little bit more complicated. We were looking for something that would reflect the architecture of Antigua. After several visits and hundreds of pictures of Antigua it was obvious, the logo had to be a window.  Every house in Antigua has a window framed with wrought iron railing.  The flowers were added  as a touch of color  as well as a reminder that Guatemala is known as the country of  eternal spring, where  flowers bloom all year around  due to It’s permanent spring weather.
