Farm Description:

This lot is from small producer Anturlio Ruiz in the San Pedro Necta municipality, perched high in the mountainous Huehuetenango. Farm altitude in this region ranges from 1800 - 2000 meters above sea level. A new addition to our "Proyecto Xinabajul" effort in Huehuetenango, Anturlio's coffee stood out as being one we wanted separate from the pack as a micro lot. It has all the sweetness of a crowd-pleasing Guatemala, but with a little more in the top note and acidity categories than many of the neighboring farms. This coffee comes to us through a joint-effort between us and Fredy Morales, a micro-mill owner who through the years has introduced us to neighbors in his village, as well as in many of the surrounding townships nearby. In addition to managing the exquisite Finca Rosma in Michico, he and his wife run an export business in Huehuetenango town. They have set up a really nice coffee lab for quality assessment, and ultimately separate out the different quality tiers together. It's always such a pleasure to visit and cup with them! It helps us greatly to enlist local support, folks who not only know the land but also the local farmers. We put in quite a bit of work ourselves, tasting many rounds of samples in order to identify the premium-level coffees, as well as make several trips to the area each year meeting with farmers and collecting information. This is part of our "Proyecto Xinabajul" in Huehuetenango, which you can read an in-depth and detailed description of the HERE.
