The first of four coffees from Huehuetenango that we will be featuring in 2016 and into first half of 2017. Sourced from our friends at Onyx Coffee, who do a wonderful job using their network to find the very best coffees of Huehuetenango. We have met the producer, Jorge Perez, on more than one occasion. This years lot does not disappoint, and is wonderfully clean and balanced.
Jorge Villatoro (agronimal engineer) has been working and managing this farm for 13 years. They have placed in many regional competitions with their coffees.
Taste Notes: clean blackberry, dark chocolate, cola, with lemon finish.
