THE STORY:

Coffee trees were originally brought to Guatemala by Jesuit missionaries in the mid-1700s as ornamental plants. It wasn't until the mid-1800s, when the invention of synthetic dyes devastated Guatemala's indigo and cochineal dye industries, that the country began growing coffee commercially on a sizeable scale.

This coffee is a blend made up of coffee farms in the Cuilco sub region of Huehuetenango. (Huehuetenango region as well as a town.) Cuilco is relatively small, tucked away in the high altitude region far above Huehuetenango town. The farms are situated in a valley between two steep mountain sides, providing perfect topography for growing coffee, and ideal shade provision from the surrounding natural forest.

OTHER:

We roast this coffee to a medium level, bringing out the rich flavor and hints of nuttiness. Recommended brewing methods include pourover and espresso.
