Huehuetenango (often called ‘Huehue’) is located in the west of Guatemala, on the border with Mexico. Huehue is a very remote area with some difficult roads. Reaching most of the farms from Guatemala City takes about 8 – 10 hours on bumpy and poorly lit roads. However, thanks to the dry, hot winds that blow from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, the temperature drops at night and warms up during the day. This allows non-volcanic Highland Huehue region for cultivation at extreme altitudes to create beans with a fine intense acidity.
