Co-op / Association: ASOBAGRI Association
Altitude: 5900 ft (1800 m)
Tasting Notes: full-bodied & smooth | delicate floral & honey | clean finish
Region Characteristics: Selva Bella beans are sourced from the Guatemalan highlands of Huehuetenango, where the high altitude, chalky soil and unique climate provide an ideal growing environment for the coffee plant.
Roastmaster's Notes: The central highlands of Huehuetenango, Guatemala are known for producing some of the finest coffees in Central America. Coffee can be cultivated here at elevations of up to 6,500 feet. This extreme elevation allows for a slow maturation process which infuses the coffee bean with more complex sugars, yielding deeper, more interesting flavors. Our Selva Bella Medium roast offers the best opportunity to taste the origin characteristics of the Huehuetenango bean, preserving the regional hints of floral and fruit while introducing a delicate sweetness to the cup.
Food Pairings: The floral and honey notes in Selva Bella are a natural fit with baked goods such as flan and cinnamon rolls.
