   Tata Nahual is the symbolic tree in the mayan population which lives in Acatenango valley. The local terroir is a result of rich mineral soil, significand daily warm and cold temperature shifts due to high altitude and hot air breeze from Pacific ocean.

   We love this coffee for the distinct personality. The tipical sweet herby notes are covered in floral perfume, the creamy texture is revealing sweet chocolate notes and even a mild acidity sometimes. It makes a great pick for milk based drinks, pleasant and balanced in espresso, a nice surprise for filter.

      All our recipes are tested on 54.5mm diameter 28mm height  and 58mm diameter 26mm height IMS competition filter baskets, on a Dalla Corte Mina espresso machine. The grinder we use are Compak PK100 and the water filtration system is RO with TDS 130-150 ppm, general hardness 108 ppm, alkaline hardness 64 ppm, 7.2-7.4 PH.  

      All these brew recipes must be taken just as a starting point. It is important to understand that tasting notes we suggest might vary when you extract at home/office or in your coffee shop, depending on your gear, skill and water specifications. 


      GEAR USED: 

      Espro Press P3 18 oz:

      Ratio 1/16.5

      300 ml water

      18 g in

      265 g out

      Grind size 700-900 microns

      When we brew French Press we aim for the balance between sweetness and body. The grind size is finer than regular french press recipes, one of the reason being the micro filters Espro Press uses ( which we highly recommend). If you have a really basic filter in your french press you should grind coarser and extend your brew time. 

      First step is pouring around 80 grams of water over the grinded coffee, in circular moves,  trying to wet all the coffee so it makes contact with the hot water and starts blooming. This should take around 15 seconds, wait for extra 25 seconds and pour the rest of the hot water, in a circular move, so you constantly wet all the coffee particles that tend to stay afloat. The aim is to extract as even as possible the coffee particles, keeping them immersed in the hot water. Finish the extraction at minute 4 and try to move the coffee in a coffee server as it can keep extracting in the press.
