Coffee production and export has always been an important part of Guatemalan economy and the way of life. It is estimated that there are over 125,000 coffee producers and Guatemala is the eight biggest exporter of coffee in the world. Coffee is one of the most important agricultural exported goods in Guatemala taking up to 40% of the areable land.
For this lot, we purchased coffees from 16 different producers to create a great quality regional blend. The personal relationships we have with the producers goes further than just the trade and we wanted to give a great chance for these producers to highlight their coffees together. This regional Huehuetenango regional lot differs largely from the other coffees on the market since we can provide a full traceability of this coffee. We can openly showcase which producers contributed for this lot.
We constantly work with our producers to improve the quality of their coffee and therefore price of their coffees. We believe that investing in these producers now will bring some great results in the future, both in coffee quality and in social change.
Thanks to dry, hot winds that blow from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, the Highland Huehue region is protected from frost, which allows for cultivation at extreme altitudes of beans with a fine intense acidity, full body and delightful wine notes present in each of our coffees.
