Huehuetenango Attila is one of Guatemala's highest and driest coffee growing regions. The region is protected from frost during the cooler months of the year thanks to warm winds blowing into the mountains from the plains of Tehuantepec in Mexico.
Average regional temperature is around 22°C with 1200-1400mm of annual rainfall. Soil is mostly limestone which contributes to the lovely acidity of the coffee.
All the coffee is hand-picked and milled the same day with 24-48 hours in the fermentation tanks followed by sun drying. Depending on the weather, drying may be finished off in mechanical driers.
