Grandma: “Oh sweetie, that’s my cherry-raspberry homemade marmalade with a sprinkle of my secret ingredient, ceylon cinnamon. Now watch your language and stop talking with your mouth full.”
About the Village
Huehuetenango microlots are from Union Cantinil located in Northern Huehuetenango in Guatemala. Cantinil comes from the term Cantigil, meaning venomous snake, so beware, this one might bite!
Due to the fact that these coffees have unique profile characteristics, the name Global Guatemala Gold was created to differentiate the coffees from neighboring Huehue region coffees. These specific microlots were produced by many smallholders that have dedicated their entire lives to the production of coffee. Each of the indigenous families who can call themselves, Guatemala Gold, produce 3-5 sixty kilo bags each year.
The Top 2%
Community leader, Jorge De Leon, who we are in contact with, is very proud to say that he organized the farmers who make up this delicious 600 bag microlot! Out of 30,000 bags that were available, we’d say he did a pretty damn good job finding the Top 2%.
