Doña Luz Auedli Villatoro, a single mother, owns and operates the La Bendición farm with her children. Her son, Carlos, worked as a roofer and carpenter in Pennsylvania for 20 years to buy the land they cultivate today. La Bendicion translates to English as The Blessing, and that’s exactly what this coffee is to us. In the cup, look for smooth body and notes of milk chocolate and caramel. We find an apple-like acidity that gives way to lime as the cup cools.
We often call our Guatemalan coffees from Huehue our “all day drinkers” because there really isn’t a bad time to be drinking them. The flavor is smooth and mellow and sits somewhere between citrusy Africans and heavy bodied South Americans.
