The farming region of Huehuetenango (pronounced way-way-tenango) has greatly improved quality over the past decade, making it one of our favorites in the country. The region borders the Mexican Chiapas mountain range, so it’s grown at higher elevations than any other region in Guatemala.
Notes of chocolate/vanilla/ with a mellow sweetness and overall smooth finish and a little earthiness.
If you think you don’t like Guatemalan coffee because of their tendency to be harsh, this one might change your mind. It's definitely a creamy, smooth coffee that shines. Huehuetenangos are right up there with Atitlan and Acatenango coffees. Year round, it is one of our best sellers.
* Coffee offered as organic has organic certification from the farm or coop. That means organic farming practices were used. At White Blossom Coffee Co. we do not offer our coffee as certified organic because of the added expense of having our roaster certified by the USDA. Therefore we can not list our coffee as "certified organic". The important factor is the non-use of pesticides and fertilizers during coffee production.
