We are delighted to return to the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, one that is filled with Mayan history and whose name literally translates as ‘place of the ancients’.
The region holds the highest non-volcanic mountains in Central America, meaning that the conditions are ideal for growing amazing speciality coffee.
This particular coffee comes from the San Antonio Huista area grown by ‘Red de Mujeres’, which is a group made up exclusively of diverse women, where about 8 different dialects are spoken. Many of the women were widowed during the civil war between 1960-1996 and others were left behind when their husbands fled Guatemala during the coffee crisis of 2001-2004. As Huehuetenango had a strong dependence on coffee as an export, many people decided to give it up altogether during the crisis and left to find work elsewhere.
However, the families that stayed continued the coffee tradition and through their hard work and resilience have come some amazing results.
Red de Mujeres coffee is Fairtrade, 100% organic and has a wonderful flavour profile. Enjoy a mixture of rhubarb, cherry and tropical fruits with a syrupy cane sugar sweetness and rich chocolatey mouthfeel.
Your coffee will arrive within 3-5 days after placing the order. Unfortunately, we are unable to fulfil international deliveries at the moment.
