This lot is made up from the coffee of three producers in Michicoy, San Pedro Necta region of Huehuetenango, and is the second blend we've posted from the region. Michicoy used to be only accessible by foot path, but a road now crests the dizzying slopes at times not much more than a car width across. We've been working with an intermediary the last few years to gain access to small holders in the region. The resulting relationships are mutually beneficial, in that by allowing us to separate their premium level coffee from the rest we are able to pay them a premium that would otherwise be lost to blending all their coffee together. And for us we are afforded direct access to coffees that would be near impossible to find on our own. Cultivars grown in the region are a mix, but Bourbon, Typica, and Caturra tend to dominate. The coffee is wet-processed, traditional fermentation to remove mucilage, and then patio dried.
