The farming region of Huehuetenango (pronounced way-way-tenango) has greatly improved quality over the past decade, making it one of our favorite in the country. The region borders the Mexican Chiapas mountain range, so it’s grown at higher elevations than any other region in Guatemala.
La Providencia produces some fantastic lots of coffee each year with altitudes around 5,000 feet above sea level.The family farm is in its third generation of ownership and cares about its long standing reputation for quality coffee.
We like this one roasted slightly less dark than most Huehuetenangos. Usually we take them 10 seconds into the 2nd cracks, but this one is most interesting right at the verge of the 2nd cracks. At this medium roast level, you get a graham cracker, vanilla, cinnamon, and almond taste profile, with a mellow sweetness and overall smooth finish and great aftertaste. You can, however, take it a little darker if you're used to that, and you still get the normal Huehuetenango result of a chocolate/vanilla/medium-dark roast.
If you think you don’t like Guatemalan coffee because of their tendency to be harsh, this one might change your mind. Huehuetenangos are right up there with Atitlan and Acatenango coffees. Year round, it is one of our best sellers.
