Guatemalan  -  Sorry Sold Out

ESE 44mm - Pack of 50

 

Guatemalan coffees are revered as some of the most flavourful coffees in the world.

Strictly Hard Bean; "SHB" refers to coffee grown at altitudes higher than about 4,500 feet above sea level.

Beans grown at high altitudes mature more slowly and grow to be harder and denser than beans grown at lower elevations.

The inherent consistency and taste attributes of high grown beans means that they have  a more consistent flavour, which is  rich, smooth and delicious and therefore more desirable, and of course generally more expensive.

The goals of Fedecocagua, Federation of Agricultural Cooperative of Coffee Producers of Guatemala Ltd, are the same as when it was founded in 1969: to achieve better market opportunities for small coffee producers and improve the living standards of their families. It achieves this by putting into practice the principles of teamwork, creativity, innovation, social responsibility and respect for nature.

The fragrance from the dry grounds has raisin-fruited notes accented with citrus, and dark-toned brown sugar sweetness, and a slight savoury note.

After adding hot water this coffee has an ebullient, lively brightness, sweet-fruited notes, and mild sweet

chocolate-dipped nuts.

As it cools there are slight almond nutty roast tones that come out, apple flavours, a hint of cranberry, with a lingering citrus acidic snap to the cup

The body is medium-to-light, which suits the nature of this cup well.

Convection roasted then individually foil wrapped in nitrogen, packed 50 pods per pack 7g per pod.
