Untold Coffee Box 4

Now a fair warning, this box is an absolute beauty

This box contained a hefty 6 (!!!!) coffees

4 from Girls Who Grind Coffee, and 2 from Untold

(James also really kindly sent me a sample of the Heist hot 
chocolate handies (which are yum!))

Were going to start with the Girls Who Grind Coffee - simply because, I've done a whole other blog post on the 3 El Salvadors - 
Read that here

I ended up doing a giveaway with the 3 El Salvadors because I didn't want them to go to waste, and I definitely couldn't get through 2 bags of each! 
So they were packed up and sent to another home to be enjoyed by someone else (lucky them!!)


Region: San Antonio Huista, Huehuetenago Guatemala
Varietal: Pache, Bourbon, Caturra
Process: Washed
Flavour Notes: Cherry Pie, Vanilla Cream

This delicious little number, was super fruity, stone fruits to be specific, and hella smooth, with next to no acidity, and had really sweet, syrup-y undertones, I mean what more could you ask for? Guatemalan is definitely up there in my top 5 go to coffees, and this definitely makes the cut.

Untold Coffee

Jeremy Abadi

Region: Valle Del Cauca, Colombia
Varietal: Castillo
Process: Washed
Flavour Notes: Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Tangerine

As soon as I took a sip, chocolate notes hit me in the best way, it's not very often you get a coffee that has the most delicious, defining chocolate notes, but damn this is it. with a sweet after taste, this is definitely my new go to "pick me up" coffee for the afternoon. 

San Luis Community Microlot

Region: Tarrazรบ Co-operative, San Luis, Costa Rica
Varietal: Caturra + Catuai
Process: Washed
Flavour Notes: Milk Chocolate, Orange

Again this coffee had a lot of chocolatey notes as well, but with loads of citrus undertones, (like a chocolate orange in coffee form!!!) it's got a slight acidity to it, which I really love in a citrus coffee because it pairs so well. It's also one of those coffees that has a taste note that I literally cant put my finger on what it is.. Anyone willing to give me sensory lessons because honestly I suck.

As usual I used the same measurements I have been for every single box whilst doing these mini reviews for the boxes

Aeropress, inverted 
16g of coffee
245ml of water 
30 second bloom
1 minute 30 brew time
30 second plunge
