The Huehuetenango department shares a border with Mexico, and is transected by the Pan-American Highway. Coffee produced in the this highland region sets itself apart from the typical Guatemalan taste profile thanks to the non-volcanic limestone soil of the Cuchumatanes Mountains. This particular Finca is located at roughly 1600 meters above sea level. The farm is mainly planted with Caturra (35%)and Catuai (60%), and a small patch of Pacamara (5%). The cherries are processed in a more eco-friendly way thanks to the Penagos pulpers the farm is equipped with. Instead of removing the pulp using the fully washed method, the fruit is rubbed off by friction. This way, only 5% of the volume of water is used in comparison to the traditional washed method, meaning a huge reduction in waste water production.
