This nutty, chocolatey, and fruity beauty comes the beloved Huehuetenango region in Guatemala. Fun fact: Huehuetenango, meaning “place of the ancients” in the Aztec Nahuatl language, was originally a Mayan settlement named Xinabajul. Today, the region’s primary export is coffee, which means that there’s a lot of amazing beans exported from this area!

Finca Los Angeles is situated on the west side of Hoja Blanca, a small village close to the border of Mexico. At 1525-1800 masl, coffee trees are planted and grown on both sides of a steep ridge line. They are also shade-grown in the shadow of chalum, mandarin, and capulin trees, and pure mountain spring water is used for exceptional flavor when processing. Vielmann Vides Villatoro Castillo manages and farms the land for his father, Arturo. After living in Los Angeles for eleven years, he decided to return to Cuilco to be with his father and to care for the farm. Diving passionately into his work, Vielmann bought more land for growing, more drying patios, and housing for his workers. Along with his wife and three siblings, they tend to the operations of the farm and produce coffees with amazing cup quality.

We taste notes of almonds, prunes, lemon rind, and cocoa powder. Try it as a Chemex for a nutty and well-balanced cup!
