About This Coffee

Huehuetenango (often called ‘Huehue’) is a municipality in Western Guatemala, bordering Mexico. The altitude of this region, combined with the hot, dry winds, creates ideal conditions for coffee growing. Because of the altitude and remoteness of the region, most farmers process their coffee at home rather than at a central wet mill.

Rosendo is trained in agronomy with decades of experience in farming and processing coffee. After being harvested by hand, coffee cherries are kept in clean containers for no more than 4 hours before de-pulping. Fermentation takes place at the home wet mill, and Rosendo is helped at every step by his wife and sisters. After 12 hours, the coffee is carefully washed clean of mucilage and dried for approximately six days on the family patio.

In the future Rosendo is interested in developing his washing process as well as looking into the honey and natural processes. “My parents were a great example for me and when we were young we were able to learn about coffee production. Today, my sisters and I are learning about the experience of producing and marketing our own coffees."

Guatemala Rosendo Domingo returns to Goodboybob! We love this coffee from Petatán Huehuetenango for its consistency, balanced flavors, and warmth. Rosendo’s training as an agronomist and his focus on applying best agricultural practices plays a major role in this coffee’s consistently clean profile year after year. Rosendo readily shares his farming techniques with his neighbors who also produce coffee. Exchanging knowledge between farmers is key to sustainable communities and coffee.

This coffee was harvested by hand on a few small parcels of land, totaling less than a hectare (a little less than two acres). Gravilea and Inga trees provide shade for the farm and the latter fixes nitrogen in the soil, aiding farm health. His farm’s name Yulchen (from the indigenous Popti Mayan language) means “place between the rocks”, an homage to the farm’s unique location.

Rosendo’s agronomic practices, careful processing, altitude, and weather patterns characterized by hot dry winds that blow over from Mexico’s Tehuantepec Plain combine to create this dynamic coffee. The Guatemala Rosendo Domingo has a lovely tropical fruit and tangerine taste profile, honeyed nougat sweetness, and a full, luscious body.
