The El Mirador blend honors the "Chuchumatanes", which is the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, located in western Huehuetenango. This natural formation is the perfect lookout, or in Spanish "Mirador”. It sits at an incredible 3,837masl with breathtaking views across the smaller mountains and valleys below. From generation to generation the word "Cuchumatán" has been used among Guatemalans. It derives from the Mam language, the most widely spoken Mayan language in Huehuetenango. This word is composed of two smaller words; "cuchuj" (to join or unite) and “matán” (with superior force) to convey the message of being “gathered or united by a superior force". This is an idea, which maybe you have felt before, when you think about how all the small decision that have brought you to a certain place or in meeting certain people, seem more than just coincidence.Without a doubt, the department of Huehuetenango has a superb variety of wildlife, biomasses, microclimates, and foothills of nutrient rich soils covered by volcanic ashes, and this is where the farms that make up this coffee blend are nestled. Each farm in this region is naturally a lookout or “Mirador” with altitudes ranging from 1,400 to 2,000 m.a.s.l. The twelve medium to small-scale coffee growers, who proudly contribute to the El Mirador blend, have come together by what seems like a superior force. They are producers that are characterized by unrivaled work, a passion for growing coffee and careful processing techniques – these characteristics have resulted in them uniting to be stronger together. These producers are always innovating and adapting at the farm level, inspiring each other to improve and this is reflected in rich, complex, and consistent coffees - some of the best in Guatemala - made possible through "Cuchumatán”.

This coffee is a triumph of the taste buds and of the spirit. The mad priest strikes again!!
The crema is gorgeous! The bean, roast, and grind quality are all superb!
Solid mug. Dope finish and look. I've had this thing for a year and it's held up. Use it every day.
It wasn't what I expected, but I was delighted that a coffee could be so fruity and floral with no real bitterness. Pretty solid stuff!
Thank you for finding this for us and for making it available to us.
Better than all the rest. All coffee lovers have to give this a try. Hopefully we'll get that chance sooner rather than later!
So good! I’m excited to go to bed at night so I can wake up and drink this coffee.
I absolutely loved the smooth, rich taste of Dark Night of the Soul from Mad Priest Coffee. Every bean was full of rich flavor that brightened my day and night. A bold and delicious brew in my cup! Caffeine really never tasted so good!
So good, will definitely become a new favorite.

First of all, when the package came in the mail I could SMELL the coffee just holding it. It smelled divine! I kept sniffing it before I even opened the packaging.
Second, I was very disappointed to not taste it. But it was supposed to be a gift. I was severely tempted to just keep it. However, my wonderfully fabulous boss has been very overworked and I don't want him to quit and then be replaced with a boss from hell. Seriously, the other two locations have hell bosses. I don't want that. So, this was part of my ongoing endeavor to make him feel appreciated and never leave because I would be big sad. And he said it tasted great, so thanks for the help Mad Priest. Shout Out to best Boss Jim!
This is our favorite coffee
