As part of a continuing mission to showcase coffees that taste "true to place" while offering outstanding quality and providing a springboard for excellence, our Waykan offerings are selected to highlight the dynamic character and profile of coffees from Huehuetenango. One of the most famous coffee-growing regions in Guatemala, Huehuetenango is considered a "coffee economy," and producers have told us that around 80% of the population makes its living from coffee either directly or indirectly.

Our friends from Cafe Imports work closely with their partners to create the Waykan lots through marathon cuppings, meticulous record-keeping, and the promise of higher premiums for better quality. Producers who own farms of any size are invited to bring their coffee to be cupped, and whether they bring 2 or 200 bags their coffee is sampled and scored.
