Guatemala Huehuetenango: (pronounced way-way-ten-ango)
Our Guatemala is a single origin coffee, smooth and well balanced, pleasing to your palette...
The central highlands of Guatemala produce some of the worlds best and most distinctively flavored coffees. With over 3.5 million bags of coffee grown each year, Guatemala is one of the top 10 coffee producing regions in the world. This relatively small country boasts one of the most climatically diverse regions in the world. The soil, rainfall, humidity, altitude and temperature vary enough that seven distinct coffees are produced in Guatemala.
Honduras San Marcos:
Our Honduran SHG (Shade High Grown) Marcala or San Marcos is grown at an elevation above 4000' in the Copan Mountain region in the Western part of Honduras. We offer ths coffee as it is grown at a higher elevation than our SHG Ocotepeque and therefore it grows a little slower and the bean is a little more intense, more full bodied in the cup and like the Ocotepeque it is low on acid. This bean is one of our favorites and has long been promoted as a good starting point to try when first ordering coffee from us. After you try this as a base coffee then you may tell us what you would like different and we can advise you at that time on our other selections. New crop is excellent
Costa Rica Tarrazu
:"A private estate Tarrazu that offers exceptionally brisk citrus acidity and a perfectly clean finish!
Although Costa Rica produces a variety of coffees, those that reach American specialty coffee menus usually are very high-grown Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) coffees from regions near the capital of San Jose in the central part of the country: Tarrazu, Heredia, Tres Rios, Volcan Poas.
Costa Rican coffees are prized for their high notes: bright citrus or berry-like flavors in the acidity, with distinct nut-to-chocolate roasty flavors."
Our Panama Boquete is getting rave reviews from our coffee club members. A very nice bodied coffee with low acidity. Truly the premium coffee exported from Panama. A nice cup anytime of day.

Central America, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, in between Costa Rica and Honduras. Nicaragua is the biggest territorial country in Central America, with coastlines to the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Two important mountain ranges go across the country: the Central American Andes (from northwest to southeast) and a volcanic trend (on the western coast). The Managua and Nicaraguan lakes lie in between these mountain ranges. Its tropical climate provides much rain to the orient and a drier condition to the occident (where population is higher).
Jinotega, one of the biggest regions in the country, is located within an area called ‘The Coffee Triangle', at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. With valleys and high mountains, Jinotega is about 140 kilometers north from the capital city. The name ‘Jinotega’ comes from the word ‘náhualt’ meaning ‘town of jiñocuabos’. However, because of its usually foggy and template weather, Jinotega is commonly known as ‘The City of the Clouds’.
This offering will ship via the USPS First Class Mail and is limited to the United States only please.
