Our Waykan offerings are chosen for their 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. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect in the region, “waykan” means “star, or light that shines in the sky at night.”
Variety: Bourboun, Caturra
Notes: Toffee, Lemon & Tart Acidity + Smooth Mouthfeel
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.
