Guatemalan - Guatemala Xinabajul Cuchumatanes Producers - A balanced, dual-purpose coffee packed with big sweetness, subtle vibrance and soft nut tones. Notes of demerara sugar, Butterfinger candy bar, honey granola and walnut.

With peaks that reach 3800 meters above sea level, the Sierra de los Cuchamatanes are the tallest non-volcanic mountainrange in Central America. With the mountainous landscape cutting right through Huehuetenango ("Huehue"), it's understandable why this area is so rife with coffee. This lot is actually made up from the coffee of two small-holder farmers in La Libertad region of Huehue (Gonzalo Perez and Prudencio Martinez). Both are growing a mix of Caturra, Bourbon, Catuaí and Typica and altitude ranges from 1800 to 1900 meters above sea level. Many of the small villages we buy from are hard to get to involving quite a trek. The relatively rough roads and isolated areas meant farmers had few options when selling their coffee locally; they could take it to the large mills down at lower elevations and get paid the going rate, or they could sell it to "coyotes" who drive the dirt roads in their trucks paying cash for coffee. Neither offered any extra price for quality, even though the coffees were grown higher and tended with greater care than the big farms down at lower elevations. We partnered with local coffee people to offer higher prices if the farmers could meet our quality expectations in the cup, and this lot is testament to that success. Given that the localities where we are buying coffee are little more than extended family groups, we have found if we involve a brother or sister, they will tell all their coffee-farming kin and soon we have a network of farmers interested in our project.
