Great aroma, big tropical fruits with a lively and complex acidity. Guatemalan naturals are rare and this one certainly doesn't disappoint.
Cobán is the most remote of Guatemala’s coffee regions, and the furthest north in the department of Alta Verapaz. Small numbers of Spanish colonizers came here after conquest, though the remote rainforests always had a relatively small population. A number of German farmers produced coffee here in the 1800s and 1900s, though many of them were removed by force during the 20th century in the chaos of World War II. This region is home to many Q'eqchi' Mayan people, whose vibrant culture colors the small towns that produce coffee today.
This region experiences year-round rain that defines life there. The misty rain is called Chipichipi in the Q’eqchi’ language. Harvesting and transporting coffee can be difficult when the roads get washed out. But the rains ensure a slow coffee maturation period, creating Coban’s characteristic sweet and complex cup profile.
