Coffee plantations in the Huehuetenango region can thrive at very high altitudes of up to 2,000 metres thanks to the hot winds arriving from the Tehuantepec plain in Mexico. Although the soil is calcareous and rocky, shade-grown crops ensure a quality production. Most producers process their coffees themselves. It is one of the best-known regions, a “land of the elders” home to exceptional coffees.
It is also where the San Antonio Huista terroir can be found, surrounding a small town of the same name located in the north, near the Mexican border.
