Guatemala has very diverse geographic and climatic characteristics, thus its territory is divided into eight separate regions in terms of coffee cultivation. From the growing areas grouped on the basis of different micro-climates, the highest region is the Huehuetenango, where small coffee farms are located on a plateau. As a result, coffees grown there belong almost exclusively to the SHB - Strictly Hard Bean - class. This category represents coffees that are grown at high altitudes, and thus they ripen more slowly, which makes the coffee beans harder and denser. The Huehuetenango coffees, which normally comprise the Bourbon, Caturra, and Catu varietals, are processed with washed method in local mills.
The coffee in our offer comes from the La Victoria Champila farm, one of the best coffee plantations in Huehuetenango, where coffee shrubs are grown in shade under large trees that protect them from direct sunlight. This coffee is recommended to those who like medium-bodied, sweet coffees with chocolaty flavour.
