Guatemala Huehuetenango Alonzo Gaspar

From: 10,75

This coffee was roasted with espresso preparation in mind, yet it is suitable for filter usage when a heftier coffee is something you like.

We share with you the efforts of Alonzo Gaspar. Although his farm is located in the well known and classic Huehuetenango, his coffee’s flavors are not what you’d expect. They turned out so much more fruity and exciting and it really shows what great care and expert processing can do to elevate an terroir. We found punchy peach, sweet raspberry and delicate milk chocolate that carries it through.

A note from our supplier, Primavera:

Huehuetenango (often called ‘Huehue’) is located in the west of Guatemala, on the border with Mexico, and trade across the border thrives. Huehuetenango was the ancient center of the Mam people, and their capital Zaculeu is preserved in the city; Popti speakers can also be found here. After defeating the Mam at Zaculeu, Spanish invaders forced many indigenous people to work in mines and on plantations in this region.

Huehue is very remote and the roads in the region can be difficult; before flights from the city, reaching farms in this area used to take 8-10 hours of bumpy driving in the high mountains. But the altitude of this region, combined with the hot dry winds that blow over from Mexico’s Tehuantepec Plain, create excellent conditions for quality coffee here. Because of the altitudes and remoteness of the region, most farmers process their coffee at home rather than at a central wet mill.

Over the years we have gained experience and knowledge about the area, farming practices and post-harvest processing, which has enabled us to empower and support the local farmers through trade and our agronomy program. We have become well known in the area, making a point to work with the new generation to create a more sustainable coffee industry in Huehue. Huehuetenango is known for beans with an intense and pleasant acidity, full body and delightful wine, floral and fruity notes.

Our coffee comes in craft paper bags which contain a plastic liner on the inside to guarantee freshness of our coffee. Please dispose properly at your local plastic trash container. The Village Coffee is roasted fresh every week, and best consumed within four weeks after roast date. Store your coffee in a dry, dark and cool place, avoid the fridge.
