Sourcing coffee in Huehuetenango, Guatemala.
Before I start on my time in Huehuetenango, I want to explain a little about Guatemala (in my view) and my reasons for taking a trip there. Guatemala is relatively small but diverse country for coffee as well as climate and culture. As with any coffee producing country there are many regions and sub-regions all of which produce excellent coffee. All these areas offer different flavour profiles and cup qualities. This being said my general view of Guatemalan coffee is nutty, sweet, balanced, chocolate. I love to buy Guatemalan coffee as this general flavour profile makes for fantastic espresso and milk based drinks as well as super moreish filter coffee.
