Guatemala Fair Trade Huehuetenango


"HUEHUETENANGO is probably the most famous (and difficult to pronounce—it is generally said “way-way-ten-AN-go”) region, and has the highest altitudes in the country, as high as 2,000 meters. Crisp malic and citrus acidity, full body, and toffee sweetness mark these coffees, which tend to be the most fruit-forward and can be the most complex of what Guatemala has to offer."

Fair trade and organic grown coffees are held to certifiable standards. Farmers make the extra effort to meet these standards and pay for this certification because they care for people and the planet. Unfortunately, this does not necessarily effect the way the coffee tastes. We agree that Huehuetenango coffees are some of the best available from Guatemala and are happy to share a fairly traded organic option that delivers on flavor!
