La Libertad is the largest municipality in the department of Peten, in northern Guatemala. This landlocked area, sitting at an altitude of 200 metres, is positioned in the hollow of a rift surrounded by high mountains. It is deep within these mountains, at an altitude of more than 1,300 metres, that you will find the production areas contributing to the creation of La Mochilita.
The very specific nature of this limestone terroir is reflected in the coffee's spicy and chocolatey notes. The La Libertad terroir is one of the highest in the Huehuetenango appellation, giving the coffee a much greater intricacy than a "standard" SHB quality coffee, which must be produced at an altitude of at least 1,200 metres.
