Your Beans Club Box 2

It's time again for another blog post on the Your Beans Club Box - if you missed the first blog post back in November on these guys, you can read it here

If you would like to learn more information about the company, what they're about, what their aim is and what they offer, I really recommend heading to that blog post to give it a read.

The coffee I received in this box was Django Coffee Company - on this blog we've looked into Django once before on I think a Dog and Hat post. So I was excited to try it again as I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee, and I managed to speak to the lovely people at the Django stand back at Bristol Coffee Festival and they were absolutely delightful. 

I love how colourful Django's packaging is - my only complaint (and this will only be me) about the packaging is the brown bag - and I will tell you why. I AM A MESSY COFFEE MAKER - I somehow always manage to spill coffee or water EVERYWHERE, and this bag really shows me up.
That is all.
(and a bloggers nightmare of a smudged date)

San Antonio - Guatemala

Huehuetenango is often referred to as "Huehue". 
Wit altitudes over 2,000 metres. Huehue is the highest and driest region of Guatemala. It is only one of three regions without volcanic soil. Historically, it has been one of the more remote areas of the country and accessibility has been challenging. In the past, many farmers have used oxen or have carried their coffees on their back. Huhuetenango enjoys easy access to water sources, enabling many producers to process their coffee. 

The beans 

Origin - Huhuetenango 
Varietal - Bourbon, Caturra
Altitude - 1432-1828 MASL
Process - Honey 
Taste Notes - Plum, Peach, Grape

Brew time 

V60 Brew
18g of Coffee
275ml of Water
3 Minute Total Brew Time
40ml Bloom, 30 Seconds, 10 Second Agitation 

This brew came out super delicious - so fruity, so peachy, with a lovely underlying stone fruit acidity. As it cooled, you definitely get more of a grape/wine bitterness.
