Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB, Tello Family Estate
Flavor Notes: caramel, cocoa, tobacco and lemony-citrus with some floral hints
Magnificent at a medium roast, but also try a dark roast.
Located in the central highlands of Guatemala, the state of Huehuetenango produces some of the finest coffees in Central America. The beans may be among the hardest beans grown worldwide.
Great for drip, blends, cold brew, espresso and pour-overs.
