About the Region
Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of Guatemala's non-volcanic regions. This renowned region owes much to the dry, hot winds that come in from the mountains of Mexico's Tehuantepec plain. The additional heat layers protect Huehuetenango from frost and enable coffee to grow at altitudes of 2,000 masl.
Due to the high altitude, nearly all of Huehuetenango's producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has rivers and streams in abundance, so mills can be placed almost anywhere.
Guatemalan producers are constantly looking for better growing conditions: richer soil; advantageous micro-climates; and ideal shade conditions. Farmers are investing in moving to higher grounds to increase their options for growing specialty coffees. Producers are dedicating lands at higher altitudes to planting traditional varietals that produce differentiated cup qualities.
Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted to order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after the order has been received and according to the roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when the order has shipped or is ready for local pickup.
