This dark and chocolatey Guatemalan organic coffee comes from Huehuetenango, a municipality in the western highlands of Guatemala.
Running up to the border with Mexico and encompassing a lot of microclimates across its undulating hills and valleys, this is a Spanish speaking area, but it is not unusual to hear Mam, highlighting the Mayan ancestry of the area.
Produced by a small number of farmers via the Fedecocagua cooperative, an organisation that provides access to agronomists, wet processing facilities, seedlings and microfinance support. This supportive environment is then bolstered by providing dry-milling facilities, greater quality control and all-important access to a global customer base.
This organic coffee is distinctive of the region and possesses a character and flavour that won’t fail to impress.
