Guatemalan Huehuetenango SHB Coffee Beans
Guatamala Huehuetenango (pronouced "whey whey tenango") is applauded world-wide as a delicious coffee on the stronger side. The SHB refers to "Strictly Hard Bean" which are coffee beans grown over 4,500 feet, this allows the beans to mature slower and develop better flavour. Perfect. We love the coffee flavour!
A strong flavour that is balanced and has a flavours of dark chocolate and walnuts, One of my personal favourites. I love it as an espresso and a filter coffee.
There are eight different coffee growing regions in Guatemala.
This BUZZ Guatemalan bean originates from the Huehuetenango highlands of North-western Guatemala. Being the highest mountain range in Central America accounts for the characteristics of these high quality coffee beans.
The high altitude, cooler climate and superb volcanic limestone soils allows the trees and beans to develop slower. A natural flavour bomb.
Coffee has helped fuel Guatemala's economy for over a century. Today, an estimated 125,000 coffee manufacturers drive Guatemala's coffee market and coffee stays one of Guatemala's main export products, representing 40% of all farming export earnings.
Today, coffee is expanded in 20 of Guatemala's 22 regions, with around 270,000 hectares planted under coffee, mostly all of which (98%) is shade-grown. The country's production is practically exclusively Arabica and is most generally prepared using the washed method.
