Single-Origin Guatemala Huehuetenango

The Guatemalan coffee experience we have come to know and love is defined by the growing region of Antigua.

Huehuetenango is located in the Sierra Madre mountain range. A section of this range is called Los Cuchumatanes, with peaks reaching as high as 12,500 feet, it is one of the coldest places in Guatemala. At night, coffee trees are exposed to the cold nights and contrasted during the day by hot winds from a valley; just over Guatemala’s northern border with Mexico. These extremes influence the complexity and depth of flavor experienced in coffee from this region.

Recipe For Great Coffee

Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.

Grind beans just before brewing:
- Coarse for coffee press
- Medium for automatic drip

Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.
