Hola dos grandes de Guatemala!We're very happy to welcome back two organic offerings from the famous Huehuetenango district in Guatemala!

One of the most highly anticipated Central American coffees we offer, Concepción Huista delivers yet again. This is our third year of working with the cooperative, and, this year, we focused on buying smaller lots – trying to capture higher quality from particular areas within the cooperative. As always, bright fruit tones are the hallmark of this coffee, accentuated by a nice, lingering sweetness with notes of pomegranate, brown sugar, and apple.

"Grotto" is the very highest point on the beautiful Finca Nueva Armenia coffee farm. High altitudes often lead to spectacular quality, and keeping coffee from the area called Grotto separate paid big rewards for us again this year; this Finca Nueva Armenia Grotto Microlot is complex yet smooth with notes of black cherry and chocolate.

Thanks,
Nathan
