MORE THAN COFFEE

The Story

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”.
