Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Laureles Medium Roast

Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Laureles Medium Roast

Regular price £5.45
Size

Finca Los Laureles is owned by Mario Roberto Sosa. The farm was purchased in 1966 and has been in the family since then. Many varieties exist on the farm, mostly “bourbon” and “pache.” Pache is a natural mutation of “typica” whose tree tends to stay smaller, while producing a larger than usual bean size. The variety originated or was discovered in Guatemala. The coffee is fully washed, and sundried on elevated drying beds.

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.

There is a focused vibrant acidity with flavours of green apple and cherry. It is balanced with a medium body and has a lingering sweetness.

Available in 200g, 450g and 1kg resealable bags made of recycled materials.

Strong and Earthy Yet Smooth

A firm favourite of mine for a long time, works really well with Latte's due to robust deep flavours, yet never bitter or overpowering.

Smooth Tasting

We found we wanted something a bit different as we keep ordering same flavour beans. Lovely smooth taste And there is not much of a chocolate after taste which suits my husband.

Strong Tasting

My husband loves this alot stronger medium bean we have had before. Luckily our machine has two Coffee vean chutes so we can have his n hers. Aroma very nice.

Very Good

We fanavour

Superb

The three coffee bean selection I tried I was very impressed with. The freshly prepared beans make all the difference and the flavours and taste are great!
