We are excited to release this wonderful and complex coffee featuring all of the best from Guatemala in one cup: flavor notes of sweet caramel, apricot, and baking spice in the finish.

Mike's initial Cupping Notes:

Our new Guatemala is the result of my first trip to origin post Covid restrictions. I met and cupped with Christian, one of the main producers and millers in Guatemala. We cupped many, many coffees and had two favorites. We experimented and created a wonderful blend highlighting the body and notes of honey, fig, and caramel from Chimaltenango with the floral orange citrus and cherry fruit notes from Rio Azul in Huehuetenango. With Guatemala Huehuetenango Rio Azul SHB EP’s focus on high altitude and clean processing, this SHB EP regional blend has all of the attributes we love about a coffee from Huehuetenango—vivid acidity and prominent fruit and floral notes.

About SHB:

Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) specifies that altitude at which coffee is grown. A coffee must be grown at at least 1,200 masl to be considered SHB. Higher altitude and lower temperatures mean that the coffee cherry matures more slowly, creating a denser bean. EP stands for European Preparation. EP beans are Screen 15+ with a low defect tolerance.

Klatch Coffee Roasting is committed to working with coffee farmers

who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality artisan roasted coffee...

Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.

Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...

Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.

Klatch Coffee Roasting believes that great artisan roasted coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
