Single Origin Project September: Guatemala Waykan

ABOUT THE FARM

Waykan is a pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango. Its crisp stone fruit acidity is perfectly balanced by flavors of toffee and sweet almonds. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect in the region, waykan means “star, or light that shines in the sky at night.” Coffee plays a large role in Huehuetenango accounting either directly or indirectly for roughly 80 percent of the local economy.
