Guatemalan Huehuetenango SHB EP MAM

(2 customer reviews)

$4.40

Regular Price $5.99/lb
Clean and rich with a sweet edge, medium bodied with a little new crop acidity upfront. A nice medium roast gives great balance between a sweet floral and mild chocolaty tone with hints of a grape skin fruity factor, gives off almost a little caramel if you hit the roast right. As the roast gets darker, the chocolaty factors turn more into a semi-sweet malty tone with far reduced acidity, a little winy note right around 2nd crack but just a hint.

Description

Guatemala Huehuetenango MAM SHB EP is sourced from small family-owned farms located within the municipalities of San Pedro Necta, Santiago Chimaltenango, Todos Santos Cuchumatan, Union Cantinil, La Libertad, and La Democracia, all in the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.  The coffee is harvested by indigenous families on farms that average 1.5 hectares in size.

This is an aggregate coffee produced by small land holders in the Huehuetenango region. A classic example of what a Huehue tastes like.

Nice screen and a clean cup. Although tasty and worth stocking, drinking this cup really lets you see how amazing the microlot single farm Guats are. Depending on personal taste, one may even like this cup better than those but hard not to see the raised acidity and sweetness as well as depth of flavor coming out of the microlots.

Tasting Notes: Clean and rich with a sweet edge, medium bodied with a little new crop acidity upfront. A nice medium roast gives great balance between a sweet floral and mild chocolaty tone with hints of a grape skin fruity factor, gives off almost a little caramel if you hit the roast right. As the roast gets darker, the chocolaty factors turn more into a semi-sweet malty tone with far reduced acidity, a little winy note right around 2nd crack but just a hint.

Roasting Notes: A nice medium to dark roast is the way to go for this bean. Too light and it gets a little grassy. A quicker roast is nice for it will be slightly sweeter.

    I am a home roaster and roasted this coffee to about twenty seconds after the end of first crack. I brewed this coffee with a V60 and as espresso, and found it to be an enjoyable coffee both ways. With the V60, I wrote down flavor notes of sweet, chocolate, and just a good tasting cup of coffee. As espresso, I wrote down the same notes with the addition of some ginger like spice that espresso often brings out of coffee to my tastes at least.

    I am a home roaster as well. Brought this coffee well into 2nd crack (20-25 seconds) with a quicker roast pattern as recommended. A very pleasing aroma and taste. Makes a great cup of coffee with some light semi-sweet chocolate tone.
