Huehuetenango has been for years one of Guatemala’s prime coffee regions and it continues to be one. The amount of high-altitude land in this region is very vast and the varieties cultivated are Bourbons or derivatives; both of these are essential to produce quality coffee. The profile of this cup is very fruity with higher and brighter citric-acidity. It is also very common to taste some chocolate notes in the background.
This year we are also bringing in microlots from CODECH. These are from higher altitude farms harvested later in the year and from specific associations under the CODECH umbrella. CODECH (Coordinator of organizations for the development of Concepcion Huista) is located in the municipality of Concepcion Huista in the department of Huehuetenango in Guatemala.
