We've been travelling to Guatemala for almost a decade, the kaleidoscope of flavours found throughout the country still leaves us nostalgic, and full of questions.

Anacafé (the national body representing all coffee growers in Guatemala) acknowledge eight main coffee farming regions throughout the country. Each region varies in weather, altitude and soil. Each on having major influences on the terroir of coffees grown in each region. The last offering from Guatemala was from Ixban in Huehuetenango. Huehuetenango is somewhat of a contrast to Hunapu receiving the least amount of rainfall of the growing regions and is one of the three non-volcanic coffee growing areas. Hunapu on the other hand is graced with moderate weather and some of the richest volcanic soils that you can find throughout Guatemala. A nutrient dense toplayer of soil is maintained by the adjoining- and very active- volcano ‘Volcán de Fuego’ which endlessly spills debris over the coffee growing farms of Hunapu.

The origin of the name Hunapu comes from the indigenous Kaqchikel language and means ‘place of flowers’. 2019 makes it the seventh year in a row we’ve purchased Hunapu through the Zelaya family, our relationship with them and the quality of coffee we get to roast, makes it all worthwhile.
