Huehuetenango is one of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic regions, as well as its highest and driest under cultivation, making it one of the best for coffee production.

Currents of hot air sweep up from the Plains of Tehuantepec, in Oaxaca, Mexico, and mix here with the cool air descending from the Cuchumatanes Mountains, creating a microclimate that’s protected from frost and allowing coffee to be cultivated at up to 2,000 meters.

Huehuetenango’s extreme remoteness requires that nearly all producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has abundant rivers and streams, making it relatively easy for producers to set up mills. Still more fortunately, Huehue’s geographic conditions help to create exceptional coffees with a distinct acidity and fruity flavors.

SHB specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude above 1,350 meters. (This term is also synonymous with SHG/Strictly High Grown, a classification that’s higher than HB.) EP (European Preparation) means that the green coffee was sorted by hand to remove any defective beans and foreign material.

Four producers from the Huehuetenango region contributed to this coffee:

Lety Anzueto, from finca Isnul in La Democracia;
Lety Perez, from finca Buenos Aires Huixoc in La Democracia;
Rene Perez, from Finca La Reforma, in Cuilco; and
Willy Perez, from Finca Las Americas and Finca San Antonio, both of which are in Agua Dulce.

Love it

This is my third order of this blend.
I also drink the honey bush blend too.
These are my absolute favourites.
I love this company. Fast service and delivery with a hand written personal note from Dave.
There's nothing nicer than opening the bag and sniffing the wonderful aroma.
I just hate having to share it with my son

Beautiful Coffee

Having tried dozens of coffee beans over the last 5 years I found this one to be as good as any have I tried, both cheaper and much more expensive it’s up there with the best. Smooth and creamy It will be my go to bean from now on.
