Our second time offering this coffee! Those new harvest feels. This is from one of our favourite regions in Guatemala, Huehuetenango. It is a little more fruit-forward and tropical while still remaining to be mild on the acidity front and balanced.

Huehuetenango is a beautiful region in far western Guatemala and is home to some of the most complex and unique coffees in the country. The importer, Melbourne Coffee Merchants, recently discovered this farm owned by the Perez family. The farm manager, Mr Wilfrido, is passionate about how the coffee, environment, and community all look after one another. This attention to detail is something that really resonates with us.
