For over 150 years, Guatemala has been producing coffees of excellent quality. There are over sixty five thousand coffee growers, of which 95% are small growers. 

Guatemala’s distinct microclimates and high quality processing methods make its coffee of the highest standards. All of Guatemala’s coffee is hand picked and the abundant water supply allows for it to be washed in a wet mill. The various microclimates and the altitude diversity produce unique cup characteristics in every coffee region. Guatemala recognizes 8 coffee producing regions and classi es them into a typical cup profile for that region. 

Thanks to dry, hot winds that blow from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, the Highland Huehue region is protected from frost, which allows for cultivation at extreme altitudes of beans with a ne intense acidity, full body and delightful wine notes present in each of our coffees.
