Guatemala Huehuetenango medium roasted coffee

Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB Medium Roast

Regular price £5.10
Size

Huehuetenango is one of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic regions, as well as its highest and driest under cultivation, making it one of the best for coffee production.

Currents of hot air sweep up from the Plains of Tehuantepec, in Oaxaca, Mexico, and mix here with the cool air descending from the Cuchumatanes Mountains, creating a microclimate that’s protected from frost and allowing coffee to be cultivated at up to 2,000 meters.

Huehuetenango’s extreme remoteness requires that nearly all producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has abundant rivers and streams, making it relatively easy for producers to set up mills. Still more fortunately, Huehue’s geographic conditions help to create exceptional coffees with a distinct acidity and fruity flavors.

SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude above 1,350 meters. (This term is also synonymous with SHG/Strictly High Grown, a classification that’s higher than HB.) EP (European Preparation) means that the green coffee was sorted by hand to remove any defective beans and foreign material.

Four producers from the Huehuetenango region contributed to this coffee:

Lety Anzueto, from finca Isnul in La Democracia;
Lety Perez, from finca Buenos Aires Huixoc in La Democracia;
Rene Perez, from Finca La Reforma, in Cuilco; and
Willy Perez, from Finca Las Americas and Finca San Antonio, both of which are in Agua Dulce.

Characteristic Guatemalan

Of all the coffee regions, Guatemala is my favourite and this offering has all the qualities I admire - particularly the richness of taste throughout the whole cup. i have tried the beans fine ground in my espresso machine and also hand ground coarser as a cafetière and it doesn't disappoint in either.

A Touch of the Monsoon Season

I ordered this Monsoon coffee from Pebble and Pine and it was delivered within a few days, an excellent service. I also received a handwritten note from Dave Nixon welcoming me to his company, a very nice touch. I can not fault this company and would have no hesitation in using them again.
My expectations of the Monsoon coffee was very high as I had read a lot about the process of its manufacture. It was not as strong as I had expected and not so vastly different from other top class coffees. Thus saying, I found it to be a really good, tasty coffee, quite light in colour and with no bitter aftertaste. I was expecting a more robust, dark roasted, chocolate flavour, but nevertheless I am not disappointed and would probably order it again as there is no fault with the coffee, the fault being more with me.

Very quick service. Haven’t tried the coffee yet!

Delicious coffee, will order this again

Absolutely delicious coffee, I've ordered this twice and I will definitely order this one again

Great beans, first time ive tried these ones and I'm not disappointed at all! Will definitely order these again
