Huehuetenago (often called ‘Huehue’) is located in the west of Guatemala, near the Mexican border. This remote area is difficult to reach by road, and boasts some of the highest non-volcanic mountain ranges in Central America. The high altitudes, combined with the hot dry winds that blow over from Mexico’s Tehantepec Plain, provide excellent conditions for growing quality coffee. This is the second of three filter coffees Calendar have selected from Huhutenago this season, highlighting just how fruity, floral and complex coffees from this remote part of Guatemala can be! 

Produced by Sotero Cano, this coffee comes from the family farm ‘La Cumbre’ - where he lives with his sons Jogli, Edin and Bayron. Sotero grows a mix of varieties, and nisperos and chalun trees provide natural shade. This coffee is fully washed using local spring water, and patio dried. Sotero is always looking to learn, innovate and improve his processing techniques. He also feels confident about the future of coffee, and hopes to inspire a new generation of coffee growers in the area. 

Think black forest gateaux, rich fruit notes and boozy undertones in this coffee. With flavours of dark chocolate throughout, expect a juicy, well balanced, and extremely moreish cup! 


About

 

Calendars story began in 2014 at Workshop Coffee in London. It was here where Zarah and Dan learnt that the best tasting coffees were almost always the most recently harvested. For something that has such a big impact on quality, they were surprised this information is rarely shared with the customer. Coffee is best treated like any other fresh produce, and they saw an opportunity to improve quality through the way they source and the producers Calendar works with.

Over the next two years, the idea for a seasonal roastery started to take shape and in November 2017, they relocated to their hometown of Galway to make their dream a reality. Following the harvest calendar, the coffees and origins they work with are always changing, depending on which countries are harvesting and the coffees that taste best. By sourcing just the right amount to meet seasonal demand, Calendar are able to build a diverse range that is sweet and full of flavour all year round!

But it’s not just about great tasting coffee. Environmental responsibility is at the heart of everything they do, and their goal is to build a coffee company for the future. Calendar are constantly looking for new ways to reduce their carbon footprint and be kinder to our planet. By no means perfect, but they've made it their mission to do better.
