Guatemala Huehuetenango La Esperanza
Taking the first sip of Huehuetenango is like putting your glasses back on after a thorough polish: Everything comes into focus. At its freshest, this crystal-clear combination of Caturra and Bourbon is all the proof we need that cultivating relationships with agricultural innovators—like Otto Herrera and his son, Octavio—means we anticipate their every harvest like a child dreaming of December. What would an olive taste like, if it were not for salt? How would Jupiter’s moons appear without a telescope? Without patience and heat we’d never sense the lemon, honey, and nectarine in this cup.
