Seasonal: Huehuetenango SBH Todosanterita Microlot
Huehuetenango is one of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic regions, as well as its highest and driest under cultivation, making it one of the best for coffee production.
A mix of hot air from Mexico and cool air descending from the Cuchumatanes mountains, creates a microclimate that’s protected from frost and allowing coffee to be cultivated at up to 2,000 meters.
Huehuetenango’s extreme remoteness requires that nearly all producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has abundant rivers and streams, making it relatively easy for producers to set up mills. Still more fortunately, Huehue’s geographic conditions help to create exceptional coffees with a distinct acidity and fruity flavors.
SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude above 1,350 meters.
Todosanterita R.L Co-op is located near the touristically town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. Members of the Co-op are mostly of indigenous descent and speak - in addition to Spanish - the Mayan language of Mam. The Mam from Todos Santos and adjacent areas are some of the few remaining people in Guatemala where also the men still take great pride in wearing their typical dress.
