Sweet aromatics / floral and fruited elements / silky body / citrus acidity
In the northwest of Guatemala, on the border with Mexico, Huehuetenango is located at the foot of the Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America; it is one of the best regions in Guatemala for coffee production. Although primarily a mountainous region, with altitudes ranging from 850 to 3,700 metres, the region has an extraordinary variety of ecosystems (from subtropical forest to pine thickets). Coffee is practically a monoculture in Huehuetenango and the local economy depends on its export
Huehuetenango has very sweet aromatics, laced with floral and fruited elements, and sugar coated nuts. Hot water builds on the fruitiness, as well as layers of bitter-sweet chocolate. Its flavours are complimented with a silky body and a well balanced citric acidity. It’s a nice marriage of flavours which change places more than once into a sweet finish.
All our coffees are hand picked from Rainforest Alliance certified farms to bring you the best single source beans.
We then hand roast in small batches.
