Guatemalan coffees have been a Fitzroy favorite for years, and this micro-lot from Huehuetenago is at the top of the list.
Grown in the highest non-volcanic region of Guatemala, the dry winds and short season imbue an exceptionally 'high grown' distinction to this Central American bean. It's a perfect cup for cold mornings and familial conversation.
86 Points - with a near perfect balance
Cupping notes: Chocolate and caramel notes, with a Sweet Cream mouth feel; medium body, light acidity; comfortable daily drinker.
While we favor full natural process coffees, this one was washed and naturally sun dried.
If you favor a rich mouth feel and subtle balance, this bean is a step above our Cubulco. I have been enjoying this in a pour overs and espresso. It's a crowd pleaser. Ideal for a holiday gathering, morning in, or alpine start to a ski day.
Try a 1:16 ratio (beans to water).
Note: We have a very limited supply of this bean (less than 40 bags)
|Espresso worthy?||Yes (straight, or light milk drinks)|
