This coffee was produced in the highlands of Huehuetenango, one of the three non-volcanic regions in Guatemala. The Huehue region is near the northern border with Mexico and is known for it’s high altitude and clean crisp cup. This lot is comprised of many lots from small farmers in the Union Cantinil Municipality in Huehuetenango. Due to the remote, rugged nature of the Huehuetenango region most producers have small wet mills on the farm where they de-pulp, ferment and wash their own production as it is harvested. Drying is then done in the sun on patios, bringing the parchment down 12% humidity.
