Huehuetenango is located in the western highlands of Guatemala, close to the border with Mexico. Spanish is the primary language but it isn’t unusual to hear a few locals speaking Mam, a language linked to Guatemala’s Mayan ancestry. Due to its many hills and valleys, the region has a multitude of microclimates. It is one of the most remote coffee regions in Guatemala, but the small number of producers mater their farming techniques ensure great quality.
This coffee originates from small producers located in Santa Barbara, San Pedro Néctar, San Juan Atitán, Todos Los Santos Cuchumatanes and La Libertad. They often carry out all processes themselves including pulping, fermentation and drying. The region has countless streams and rivers therefore it’s easy to come across many mills nearby.
