About the Coffee
Our Los Huipiles line of coffees are designed to give roasters easy access to the flavors of Guatemala's distinctive coffee regions and micro-climates.
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 2,000 masl.
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.
A classically balanced, richly nut-driven Guatemala cup from the Huehuetenango growing region. Aroma and flavor notes lead with cashew butter, black cherry, and lily, with undertones of fresh-cut oak and grapefruit zest. The mouthfeel is plush and smooth, acidity is mild, and the quiet finish centers around stone fruit and nut tones.
Guatemalan producers are constantly looking for better growing conditions: richer soil; advantageous micro-climates; and ideal shade conditions. Farmers are investing in moving to higher grounds to increase their options for growing specialty coffees. Producers are dedicating lands at higher altitudes to planting traditional varietals that produce differentiated cup qualities. Read more in our Guatemala Origin Report.
