$10.00 – $19.00
Flavor notes: chocolate, almond, blackberry, caramel
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 6,000 feet above sea level. Due to the high altitude, nearly all of Huehuetenango’s producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has rivers and streams in abundance, so mills can be placed almost anywhere. 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, blackberry and caramel. You may even taste some pops of lemon verbana! It has a full, velvety mouthfeel, gentle, round acidity, and a resonant, almondy finish.
