Huehuetenango, at the foot of the Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, is one of the best regions in Guatemala for coffee production. Huehuetenango is in the northwest of Guatemala, on the border with Mexico. It is primarily a mountainous region, with altitudes ranging from 850 to 3,700 meters, though the region has an extraordinary variety of ecosystems (from subtropical forest to pine thickets). Coffee is practically a monoculture in Huehuetenango and the local economy depends on its export.
Huehuetenango has very sweet aromatics, laced with floral and fruited elements, and sugar coated nuts. Hot water builds on the fruitiness, as well as layers of bittersweet chocolate. Its flavors are complimented with a silky body and a well balanced citric acidity. It's a nice marriage of flavors which change places more than once into a sweet finish.
