Description

The Guatemala Huehuetenango Dulce Leonarda Estate’s farmlands cover roughly 590 acres and vary in elevation from 5,000 to 5,400 feet, making this a true SHB grade (Strictly Hard Bean) Guatemala arabica. The family produces an assortment of 100% shade grown Bourbon, Catuai and Caturra varietals, handpicks their cherries and operates their own wet mill right at the farm. Parchment is transported to the exporters dry mill located in Escuintla, where it is brought down to its green state. Annual yield for the Dulce is only about 1,000 bags per year, which makes this a rare find! We think it shines as a medium roast, but you decide…old time Huehuetenango is back!.

Just roasted it yesterday, and it's the quintessential, excellent Huehue. There's a complexity that's not quite spice but a gentle earthiness. Yes, it's sweet, nutty, good brightness for structure and for mouthfeel that's similar to a chardonnay. Because it's earthy I wouldn't describe it as a "clean cup," but it's not funky at all, so that's not a defect. I did 9 and 10.5 minute roasts and the longer one brought out more complexity. Both were taken through 1C. The first was dropped at 424 and the second at 418°F.
