This coffee is a regional select crowd pleaser it has tart acidity and a very pleasing sweetness all around your tongue, mild toffee, praline and cooked fruit flavors. Crisp acidity reminiscent of lemon, grape, or apple, and a balance of toffee and sweet nuts, like almond.

About Regional Select 

The Regional Select program was created to highlight the unique profiles found that are inherent to various microclimates in many of the countries from which green coffee is sourced. Local variables like wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influencers have much to do with the common characteristics that separate, say, a Northern Colombian from a Southern Colombian coffee, just as they inform the differences between a Colombian and a Kenyan.

 

About Region

Waykan offerings are chosen for their pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect in the region, “waykan” means “star, or light that shines in the sky at night.” The indigenous population in and around Huehuetenango plays a large role in the coffee production here, and coffee accounts either directly or indirectly for roughly 80 percent of the local economy.
