Guatemala La Canoa, Honey

SINGLE ORIGIN – FILTER

Of the three non-volcanic regions, Huehuetenango is the highest and driest coffee producing regions. Thanks to the dry, hot winds that blow into the mountains from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, the region is protected from frost. These high altitudes and relatively predictable climate make for exceptional specialty coffee. The extreme remoteness of Huehuetenango virtually requires all producers to process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has an almost infinite number of rivers and streams, so a mill can be placed almost anywhere.

Citrus qualities of orange and grapefruit are accompanied by a toffee-like sweetness in this honey processed bourbon from Guatemala.
