This coffee is from the mountainous Huehuetenango region in Guatemala near neighboring Mexico. This region is special to me, we have visited Huehue twice before and we have cupped hundreds of coffees from this region of Guatemala. My love for Guatemalan coffees grew after traveling the region in search for the best coffees we could find throughout the country. Huehuetenango produces coffee that is consistently sweet, crowd pleasing, and I have often found the caramelized sugar notes reminiscent of butterscotch and toffee. 

This coffee represents it's region beautifully with complexity, body, and lingering sweetness. The butterscotch note comes in heavy handed in the aroma and specifically reminds me of Werther's Originals. The coffee reveals increasing levels of fruit notes as the cup cools, I taste apricot, raspberry, and some cherry, the coffee is deeply fruited but not overly bright or acidic. It is a sweet and complex coffee with a medium to light body.

Finca La Bolsa, situated in the serene hills of Huehuetenango, Guatemala, this coffee embodies decades of dedication and passion. Managed by the Vides family since 1958, this Rainforest Alliance-certified farm specializes in Bourbon and Caturra varietals that grow under a lush canopy of trees. Pioneered by Dr. Vides and now under the stewardship of his daughter and grandson, the farm has won accolades such as Guatemala's "Outstanding Coffee Grower" award. Each cup exudes a legacy of quality, showcasing notes of cherry, butterscotch, and plum.
