New Harvest Coffee Roasters
Organic Guatemalan Huehuetenango
|Rumford, Rhode Island
|Huehuetenango growing region, north-central Guatemala
High-toned, rather delicate, with a crisply dry but sweet acidity. Raisins and vanilla, in the aroma, tart tropical fruit tones - tamarind or passion fruit - in the cup.
Certified organically grown and fair-traded, meaning small-holding farmers have been paid a price determined by international formula to be "fair," or economically and socially sustainable. Huehuetenango, a mountainous, rugged growing region near the Mexican border with a relatively dry climate, is a favorite Guatemala growing region among coffee insiders, who value its typically sweet, delicate, fruit-toned cup. New Harvest Coffee Roasters specializes in quality organic and fair-traded coffees. The label of this Huehuetenango offers a sort of cup-related horoscope: "It's sunny and clear, all signs point to a new love in your life." Visit
