This coffee was grown in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. It is the highest coffee region under cultivation. It is also by far the most rugged and remote area in Guatemala, with coffee cultivated in broken and very steep terrain. Dry hot winds blow into the mountains from the Tehuantepec plain in Mexico, protecting the region from frost, allowing coffee to be cultivated up to 6500 feet. Huehue’s extreme remoteness requires that virtually every producer, large or small, individual or farm, process his own coffee. Fortunately, the region is abundant with rivers and streams.
This coffee is UTZ CERTIFIED, which means it was produced with great care for the quality of the coffee and the quality of life of the farmers who grow it.
