This coffee hails from the Huehuetenango region, a location renowned for coffee production in the highlands of West Guatemala. Coffees from Guatemala have a reputation for high quality, which is due to a combination of a couple of things; ideal growing conditions and a fostered focus on improving production and processing methods.
