This coffee from the Huehuetenango region is a great elevated daily drinker. Try this coffee if you want a silky smooth morning cup with hints of milk chocolate and elevated sweetness. This Waykan offering is chosen for its pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango, with its crisp acidity reminiscent of lemon, grape, or apple, and a balance of toffee and sweet nuts, like almond. 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.
