Todos Santos Huehuetenango, Guatemala
Tropical Fruits, Jasmine, Chocolate Brownie
Hidden amongst the highlands of Huehuetenango, the Cooperative Todos Santos Asodiett was originally formed by a committee of 10 producers in 1995, which over the years, has grown to 55 producers. The different farms of the cooperative range from half a hectare to 10 hectares in size, traditionally producing Bourbon and Caturra varietals. With recent renovations, this cooperative has added Sarchimor, Catimor, Anacafe 14 and various plots of Pacamara to their repertoire of Certified Organic Coffees.
Most of the cherries in this region ripen uniformly over a short period of time, due to a combination of altitude, unique rain pattern and warm winds from the valley of Rio Ocho. This leads to a shorter harvesting season lasting between January and March. In this region the rainy season can often continue during the harvest season, which makes drying the coffee particularly tricky. Therefore, most of the coffee from these producers is processed in their houses and dried on small patios or roof tops.
