This delicious, high-grown Guatemalan bean comes from a collective of farms in and around Huehuetenango. It’s a smooth and pleasant cup, with notes of caramel, raisin, mild chocolate, and sweet apple flavors. Not a bad way to start the day!

This particular offering, called a Wakan, is chosen for its pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango! We love the crisp acidity reminiscent of lemon, grape, or apple, and a the balance of toffee and sweet nuts, like almond. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect in the region, “waykan” means “star, or light that shines in the sky at night.” So…we think this coffee will literally help you Share Your Light! 🙂

The indigenous population in and around Huehuetenango plays a large role in the coffee production here, and coffee accounts either directly or indirectly for roughly 80 percent of the local economy.

Grab a bag, and give it a sip with someone you love!
