On the nose you’ll enjoy hints of cocoa, berry and clove. In the cup flavors of chocolate, cocoa, truffle and slightly spicy flavors unfold. Roasted to perfection, this coffee is sweet, smooth, full bodied, moderately acidic with a mild earthy finish. One of our favorites!

Huehuetenango is one of the most important growing regions in Guatemala. A variety of microclimates and growing altitudes of up to 2,000 meters ASL produce bright, sweet coffees with a strong body and distinctive fruit flavors. Smallholder farmers from the Mam ethnic group, one of Guatemala’s Mayan descendants, grow most of the coffee in this region, and sun-dry their coffees, giving the beans a beautiful green-blue hue.
