This is a wonderful Guatemala coffee from the Huehuetenango region. We happen to love the heavy body but also a nice bright acidity. It works well as a drip but also, try over ice or even a nice Cold Brew coffee as well.
This Los Huipiles line of coffees are designed to give us roasters easy access to the flavors of Guatemala's distinctive coffee regions and micro-climates. Los Huipiles is also a traditional embroidered blouse.

About the Coffee
Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of Guatemala's non-volcanic regions. This renowned region owes much to the dry, hot winds that come in from the mountains of Mexico's Tehuantepec plain. The additional heat layers protect Huehuetenango from frost and enable coffee to grow at altitudes of 2,000 masl.
Due to the high altitude, nearly all of Huehuetenango's producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has rivers and streams in abundance, so mills can be placed almost anywhere.
