Bergie’s Guatemala Hue Hue Honey Process

  Guatemalan Hue Hue Honey Process is Bergies new coffee on their Select Self! Turns out to be a wonderful addition to the Bergies line of coffee!

The Honey Process is a method of curing coffee, the skin and pulp of the coffee bean is removed, but the mucilage is left on. This method imparts a sweeter flavor profile, hence the name “honey”. Honey Process is now the new and exciting way of processing coffee, which in my opinion is a really, good thing! Of course there is no real honey being used to add flavor, or cure the coffee beans, there are other methods out there that add flavors, but I will discuss that at a later date.

 

The Guatemalan Hue Hue is a fine coffee that you can find anywhere at any coffee shop, but coming across a honey process Guatemalan is not that common. Which of course means that Bergies has that coffee in limited amounts, so if you are a coffee coinsurer, and you want to add this experience to your “done that” list, then you should go to Bergies, and get a bag…right now!

 

Here is what I found.

 

Aroma:

The aroma is a mix of rich nutty, chocolate notes, with an amazing floral undertone.

Flavor:

Nuttiness is the primary flavor offering a balance of chocolate, that is naturally sweet, and clean, but has a strong flavor. After the cup cools down a bit I noticed a nice malty flavor that contributes to the sweetness of this cup.

 

Acidity:

Bright, and not overbearing, and well balanced between the smoothness, and sweet. This trait did not go away, even after the cup cooled down quite a bit.

 

Body:

The body is full of flavor, but it is light in texture, it coats your entire mouth, imparting a full array of the flavors mentioned above. I like this very much, as some coffees are prone to be heavy, leaving a long bitter aftertaste, but not with this coffee. You get a clean finish.

 

Finish:

Overall I found the Guatemalan to be bright and fresh, no bitter aftertaste. A well balanced cup between nutty and chocolate with some lovely floral undernotes with a hint of malt as the cup cools down, making this coffee a real treat to have. Good job Bergies!
