New season Las Amapolas
Huehuetenango, Guatemala has landed 🍬
Guatemala is a fascinating country with rich indigenous culture and stunning natural habitats.
Set in the northwest, bordering Mexico, Huehuetenango has become one of the most well-known coffee growing areas in the country.
The name “Huehuetenango” stems from the historic Aztec language Nahuatl and translates into “place of the ancestors”.
Elevation in this area reaches from 300 to 3850 meters, creating ideal micro-climate conditions for coffee cultivation.
Due to the high elevation these beans grow slower than usual, but also develop a higher density, i.e. building a very hard core.
This is fostered through intense sun exposure during the day, while cold and moist winds cool down the area at night.
Along with higher density comes a complex abundance of citric and fruitful aromas that allow lots from Huehuetenango rank as some of the very best coffees in the world.
This coffee is sweet and balanced making a lush, sweet espresso with milk chocolate notes and stone fruit.
It’s ideal for milk based drinks, while lighter roasts are perfect for filter.
