Coming from the mountain sides of Huehuetenango, Las Cuevas is crisp, balanced coffee that expresses ripe red fruit currants and pomegranate, a soft sweet citrus acidity , with subtle nutmeg note adding depth to the cup.
Notable about Las Cuevas is the high growing elevation of this microlot. This slows the cherries ripening, intensifying its sweetness and adding complexity to its flavors.These environmental conditions show up in the cup as balance and sweetness. Our producing partners, the Vides family then use their multigenerational knowledge of processing to wash this coffee which leads to its crisp, clean presentation.
Las Cuevas is a wonderful example of how elevation affects flavor and shows off what makes coffees from Huehuetenango so special.
