Guatemala Huehuetenango El Paraiso

Guatemala Huehuetenango El Paraiso


This is a small lot is built from the coffees of a few small producers in the El Paraiso micro-region of Huehuetenango. This lush valley boasts a dramatic landscape of jutting cliffs, and seemingly endless green as far as you can see. Farmers in the region, grow coffee on small parcels of land often adjacent to where they live - in many cases less than a hectare of coffee . Bourbon and Caturra are dominant varietals, but you'll see the occasional Typica tree mixed in. Processing is handled locally, pulping the coffee and then laying it out to dry on concrete patios.

El Paraiso lot lets off thick caramel sweetness and buttery toffee-coated nut. It's a sweet smelling crust has a chocolatey smell like Nutella spread. Raw sugar and caramel flavors lay the groundwork for a crowd pleasing coffee.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
