Huehuetenango is well-known for its consistent weather patterns. The region is surrounded by plains and hilly mountains that allow for both cold and hot air to pass through the lands. These conditions have made it great for producing distinctive coffee crops.
The SHB classification stands for Strictly Hard Bean and is given to coffee grown at 1200 m.a.s.l. or higher. Coffees grown on high altitudes mature slowly due to colder temperatures and produce much denser bean compositions. EP stands for European Preparation. EP beans are Screen 15+ with a low defect tolerance. Grown on an altitude of 1200-1350 m.a.s.l.
Best enjoyed as an espresso, long black or a flat white.
