Chiquimula, Guatemala

Chiquimula in the New Oriente coffee growing region, department of Totonicapán, nestles deep in the western highlands of Guatemala's Sierra Madre mountains. A stunning collage of rugged mountains, virgin forests, volcanoes, ravines, verdant valleys, and sweeping plains, this land was home to ancient Mayan centers. Economically, socially, and culturally, this area played a key role for thousands of years.

Chiquimula boast the rich volcanic soil, a temperate environment that makes for the best coffees, and more than that, a community which can draw on a centuries-long heritage of coffee cultivation. Not only do most farmers and estate owners claim Mayan heritage, they still speak Mayan K’iche’. Specialty-grade coffee from here is intriguing, balanced, complex, with deep chocolate and fruit presenting.
