Guatemala / Huehuetenango
We received this coffee from Cafe Imports and they called this specific import Waykan, a word taken from the Maya Q'qnjobal language. 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.
The Waykan offering was chosen for the pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango, with their crisp acidity reminiscent of lemon, grape, or apple, and a balance of toffee and sweet nuts, like almond.
