Guatemala Huehuetenango Dulce Leonardo Estate 1 lb. – Whole Bean Wholesale
In the cup, our Guatemala Huehuetenango Dulce Leonarda is syrupy-sweet with subtle nuanced flavors, harkening back to the old days if you recall, when Guatemalan coffee could be profoundly interesting and clean with a smooth mouthfeel, good acidity, great body and profound sweetness! There are hints of caramel, cocoa and tobacco, a nice lemony-citrus acidity and a lingering, floral finish.
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 and you can only get it here! For 10 years we’ve been honored to be the exclusive purveyor of this coffee, produced by this distinguished Gustavo Mauricio Tello family of coffee farmers. We think it shines as a medium roast, but you decide…old time Huehuetenango is back!
