Huehuetenango, pronounced “way-way-ten-an-go”, is a bit of a mouthful to say but an incredible taste in the mouth. One of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic regions, Huehuetenango is the highest and driest region under cultivation, making it one of the best for coffee production. Currents of hot air sweep up from the Plains of Tehuantepec, in Oaxaca, Mexico, and mix here with the cool air descending from the Cuchumatanes Mountains, creating a microclimate that’s protected from frost and allowing coffee to be cultivated at up to 2,000 meters.
Huehuetenango 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.
t makes for a lovely early afternoon latte or flat white, in our humble opinion it is the perfect Autumnal coffee.
