The reception to our recent Ceiba offering was so strong that we moved through our supply much faster than anticipated. We worked quickly with our friends at Cafe Imports to bring in another coffee from Guatemala, and we’re incredibly excited to be able to share this one with you. It comes from the Huehuetenago region. With the highest altitudes in the country, as high as 2,000 meters, crisp malic and citrus acidity, full body, and toffee sweetness mark these coffees. In 2012 and lasting for several years, an outbreak of coffee-leaf rust proved a tremendous obstacle for coffee production in the country, reducing yields by as much as 25% and causing the government to declare a state of emergency. Anacafé, has been working closely with World Coffee Research on variety trials and research that will hopefully result in future protection and prevention of similar outbreaks, as well as provide more productive harvests for the smallholder farmers. We are honored to support the continued recovery and production of coffee in this region.
