Guatemala

Huehuetenango Black Honey

washed

this black Honey is produced in the huehuetenango region. as one Of the three non-volcanic regions, it’s probably known as the most famous region in guatemala, and offers the highest altitudes in the country with an average height of 1800 – 1900 masl. The extreme remoteness of Huehuetenango virtually requires all producers to process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has an almost infinite number of rivers and streams, so a mill can be placed almost anywhere. this black honey is very good as single-origin brew, or as an ideal blend component that layers perfect with more complex coffees.

Coffees from Guatemala

Guatemala’s coffee belt runs along a chain of 34 volcanoes that crosses the country from East to West and benefits the coffee production with soils rich in minerals and nutrients. The soil is mostly volcanic, limestone and pumice. Consistent rainfall and year round warm climate guarantee the crops. The coffee is mostly grown under Gravilea and Inga shade trees which make 7% of the national forest. It is always hand-picked and dried under the sun, except for the Cobán coffee, which production region is sometimes too humid.

Main production areas: San Marcos, Huehuetenango, Atitlán, Acatenango, Antigua, Cobán, Fraijanes, Oriente.

Cup Profile: A fragrant, full bodied coffee with pleasant citrus acidity. Depending on the region the coffee can vary from intense acidity and fruit notes to delicate sweetness and chocolatey.

Export bag size: 69 kg, specialties in 30 kg bags

Total number of coffee farmers: over 125.000 coffee farmers
