The body is very smooth and silky in the cup, with notes of black tea, walnuts, chocolate, and hazelnut candy.

Guatemala Huehuetenango Rio Azul SHB EP is sourced from four-hundred family-owned farms located within the municipality of Huehuetenango in the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. On average, producers cultivate coffee on 2 acres of land intercropped with corn and beans produced for their consumption.

However, the producers have minimal infrastructure to process their coffee, so they partnered with an export company called Unitrade Coffee, a centrally located wet mill in Huehuetenango where producers can deliver their cherry.

In addition to supporting coffee producers and improving their access to international markets, Unitrade established an organization called CoffeeCare (focused on education, nutrition, and health.) The mission of CoffeeCare is to ensure that producers have healthy places to send their children to learn, grow and play while they are harvesting coffee.
