This lot is a blend of coffees from five coffee producers in the San Pedro Necta municipality. (Most of them are from a single town of Buena Vista, though one lot was procured from a farm in Chichimes). The San Pedro growing region is perched high in the mountainous Huehuetenango, where farm altitude ranges from 1800 - 2000 meters above sea level. This coffee comes to us through a joint-effort between us and a San Pedro Necta 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. He and his wife run an export business in Huehuetenango town, and have set up a really nice coffee lab where they roast and cup coffees, 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.
