A syrupy, complex cup with a big bold flavour. A winey body with malt backbone and raisins, followign through to a sweet honey and passionfruit finish. Well regarded coffee for a very good reason.

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