In the rural highlands of Guatemala, you can tell where a woman lives by the patterns on her huipil, or traditional blouse. The beautifully woven and embroidered motifs are unique to each community.
In a similar way, astute coffee lovers can tell where a Guatemalan bean was grown based on the flavor and aroma patterns imparted by its environment.
Guatemala boasts eight distinct coffee-growing regions, each with its own personality and expression in the cup. High mountain ranges, predictable rainfall, and defined microclimates create a rich diversity not seen in many other countries.
The Huehuetenango region in Guatemala’s northwest highlands is known for producing coffee with fine, intense acidity and a full body. Look for well-balanced fruity notes, a berry aroma, and a sweet cocoa finish.
