El Rancho represents the largest single lot of coffee that we sourced from Huehuetenango this year, that we will be featuring in 2016 and first half of 2017. Sourced from our friends at Onyx Coffee, who are fully immersed in the region, and do a wonderful job using their network to find the very best coffees of Huehuetenango.  In April of 2016 we visited El Rancho, with the owner Robin Guiterrez, and he spent several hours proudly showing us around his land.  He has also just purchased some neighboring land, and was planning on planting seedlings this past summer.  Our lot comes from two locations on his farm, and exhibits a classic Huehuetenango cup; wonderfully clean and balanced, with notes of cocoa and cola.

Taste Notes: dark chocolate, cola, with balanced lemon acidity
