Kalita Recipe | Guatemala Yula


For this coffee we have chosen the Kalita brewer, seeking to highlight its sweetness and body. With this recipe we get a drink with herbal aromas like black tea, sweet aromas and honey. But when lowering temperature citrus fruits such as lemon appear, and when it cools down completely it is pure honey and caramel. In flavor it is sweet (very sweet) and round, with a bright citric acidity, a super silky body and a very long caramel aftertaste.

  • Dose: 12g  (medium-fine grind. 20 clicks with Comandante c40)
  • Water: 200g at 96ºC

We’ll make 4 pours in circles with controlled flow, seeking to saturate all the coffee.

  • Bloom 40g
  • @40s up to 100g
  • @1:10 up to 150g
  • @1:40 up to 200g
  • @3:00 total brew time aprox.

Recipe based on results with kalita wave 185, comandante c40 grinder and 150ppm water.

The Coffee

Nolberto is a first generation coffee producer. During his youth he worked in coffee farms so he already had the experience needed to start his own. The funds to start the farm came from his sons. Now he is part of El Sendero Cooperative, which has 192 members and provides support and information to all producers in the Concepcion Huista area. Before growing coffee, they were engaged in general agriculture, growing crops of corn or beans, but now they have decided to focus entirely on producing high-quality coffees.
