About

Guatemala Huehuetenango coffee is praised for having the best of both worlds; a mild body that doesn't overwhelm the palate, but also a beautiful depth of flavor untouched by many other coffee growing regions. Our Guatemala Huehuetenango coffee has a flavor profile that begins with a sweet cherry flavor and notes of chocolate, eventually rounding off into a baked spice finish with medium acidity. The body of this Guatemalan coffee is flavorful, yet mild and is an excellent coffee to enjoy any time of day.

This particular Guatemalan bean is produced using a standard that is becoming less and less common as technology in the coffee world improves. The beans are prepared for export using the European Preparation standard, a process in which the beans are hand sorted until there are no more than 8 defects per 300 grams of unroasted coffee, helping the finished product to have the amazing balanced flavor profile the region is most famous for.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Guatemala

Guatemalan is the life of the party. It gets along with everyone and requests the best throwback jams you thought you forgot. Guatemalan coffee is often strictly high grown, as is the case with our Guatemala Huehuetenango, meaning the coffee is more dynamic in terms of acidity (brightness) and its flavors, such as stone fruit, cacao, and spice. For context, the flavor of coffee grown at lower altitudes tends to be more nuanced and earthy.
