About:

 

Calahute is owned by the Anzueto family, who purchased the farm in the 1950s. Today, it is managed by third-generation coffee producer Alfonso Anzueto, who inherited the farm from his father.

Calahute (which translates to “Free Deer”) is located in Huehuetenango, a stunning region located in the west of Guatemala near the border of Mexico. Huehuetenango is known for its vast ethnic diversity and Cuchumatanes mountain range, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in all of Central America. It is also home to some of the most complex and celebrated coffees in the country, which frequently appear in the top ten of the Cup of Excellence competition. This is in part due to the incredibly high altitudes that coffee is able to grow at (up to 2,000m above sea level), thanks to the dry, hot winds that blow into the mountains from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain which protect the region from frost. These high altitudes, combined with a relatively predictable climate make for exceptional, complex and very sweet coffee, like this very special lot from Calahute.
