Roast of the Week : Guatemala Tecuamburro 'El Pollo'

Another prime bean from Mercanta, delivered by Hasbean.
We've had a couple of coffee's from this Finca San Francisco on the menu before.

Today we offer the 'El Pollo' microlot. This lot is situated at the very highest point of the farm which is 1770 metres above sea level. It's a mix of Bourbon and Catuai varietals, which are hand picked, fully washed and sun dried.

In the cup we have a round sweet coffee. It has a buttery moothfeel, orange-lemon acidity, caramel sweetness, with a very long and clean finish. Really remarkable.

The roast is medium. Great for espresso and, although not perfect, nice on filter/press as well.

We still have plenty of Tecuamburro in stock and offer you a nice price : € 5,20 for a 250 grams bag.
See you soon?
