About This Coffee
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.
Like all farmers, the coffee growers of La Finca Esperanza concern themselves with the soil without losing sight of the earth. Every so often, they raise their eyes from the drying patios, past the pink-hulled passionfruit winding through the fences, and up through the trees of San Pedro Necta, where the lucky might even glimpse the emerald slopes of southern Mexico.
