Keeping it Fair & Green

We are happy to introduce a new coffee at Cafe Ole: Guatemala Huehuetenango. Pronounced Way-Way-Ten-Nang-Go, this is one of Guatemala's best and highest grown coffees. Crisp acidity and intricate flavors make this another "power house" coffee. Bold, yet buttery smooth.
From the highlands of western Guatemala, coffee grown in the Huehuetenango (Way-way-ten-nang'-go) region is noted for exceptional smoothness, deep chocolate undertones and moderately bright acidity. Very few coffees in the world have the power and balance to hold up so well on their own. It is a very well balanced cup, with a bold, bright flavor. It is also a very complex cup, with a multitude of flavors and aromas. The flavors seem to change as the coffee cools in the cup. The finish is powerful, yet clean.
The high mountains, abundant rainfall and well drained volcanic soil make this area one of the best coffee growing regions in the world. Over and over people have reported that this is their favorite coffee, and we find it hard to come up with reasons why it shouldn't be. The Fair Trade and Organic certifications may make this coffee a bit more expensive, but they also mean the coffee was grown with a concern for the environment and for the people who grow it. It is on our short list of the world's great coffees.
