Finca Alejandrina is located in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Coffees from Huehuetenango (pronounced “way-way-ten-an-go”) present a fruitier profile than other most other Guatemalan regions. The farm sits at 1900 meters above sea level creating an environment that produces excellent coffee that is dense and full of flavor.
On the farm you can also find plums, oranges, pears, and avocados, but 95% of the farm remains coffee. The soil is rich in nutrients which allow for healthy growth in the coffee trees, as well as these fruits. These terroir factors along with the sustainable care and strict dedication to excellence from Herman Tello Alverado, produces marvelous coffee that we love so dearly.
Guatemala accounts for 2.5 of the world's total coffee production. Finca Alejandrina’s annual production is 44,092 pounds of coffee.
We’ve found that this specific coffee strikes that textbook balance of brilliance and sweetness in the cup. It’s complex and yet approachable. Hand’s down, Derek’s favorite coffee at the moment. He’s drinking 2 cups of it daily.
Learn more about the relationship between producers, importers and roasters. This is a direct trade coffee and we’re excited we get to partner with Edwin at Onyx Coffee to source this astonishing Guatemalan bean.
