Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB Medium Roast

Regular price £5.29
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 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.

Ordered this after just having returned from a time spent in Mexico - really pleased to discover that this is as good as the coffee out there. Very similar taste. Authentic and delicious.

Great coffee

Love this one, it’s pretty smooth for a slightly stronger coffee that Were use to, makes a great espresso, will order again for sure.

Love this

A lovely balanced flavour and I particularly like the story behind this one.

Good beans

These are very tasty, but we also had the Brazil Ipanema (yellow bourbon) at the same time, which are outstanding.

Very, very good!

These are delicious beans, used with a Sage Barista machine & produces a beautiful coffee - one of the best we’ve tried.
