Guatemala Huehuetenango medium roasted coffee

Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB Medium Roast

Regular price £5.15
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.

Beautifully layered flavours

By far the best coffee I have found in recent years. We buy this by the kilo, while also testing other flavours in your repertoire. This one is my absolute favourite, lovely silky and smooth. Perfect for Bialetti.

Lovely and mild

I do like a strong coffee, but this tastes so nice I’m kind of leaning more towards mild coffees.

Good coffee!

Really nice and rich coffee!

Good coffee!

This coffee is indeed very good!

Very to my tastes, hardly a coffee tasting aficionado but regardless I found it had slight nutty (walnut??) overtones, a nice rounded acidity - I enjoy this in coffee, I tend to do quite an overextracted press. Fabulous freshness, a nice little bubble when hot water is added. A crisp roast as well, even just eating a bean is a pleasure. Good stuff!

I prefer dark roasted beans, this is a lovely tasting coffee

Delicious

Great coffee. I have finally found a supplier of delicious coffee beans
