Guatemala SHB Huehuetenango

Medium Roast

sweet, nutty and orange citrus

This delicious Guatemalan coffee has a sweet maple aroma, a delicate citrus acidity and a milk chocolate orange flavour with a syrupy body.  A sweet and complex coffee,  it is comprised of Typica, Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varietals grown at 1350masl and is washed processed.
Huehuetenango  (pronounced way-way-te-NAN-go) 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 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. 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.
