About the Region

Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of Guatemala’s non-volcanic regions. This renowned region owes much to the dry, hot winds that come in from the mountains of Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain. The additional heat layers protect Huehuetenango from frost and enable coffee to grow at altitudes of 2,000 masl.

Tasting Notes

The Huehuetenango growing region is known for producing a sweet, balanced cup, and this organic-certified coffee is comprised of five highly regarded varieties of Arabica — Caturra, Bourbon, Catuai, Typica, Pacamara — netting a nuanced, deep-toned cup with notes of date, almond, baking chocolate, and lemon verbena. It has a full, velvety mouthfeel, gentle, round acidity, and a resonant, almondy finish.
