This Guatemalan specialty lot comes from the southwestern village of El Coyequal, an area where several famous producing areas meet from every direction. El Coyequal has a tiny population of roughly 500 people. The area in which most of the coffee is produced is roughly 240 acres. El Coyequal and the surrounding area is enclosed in a valley, so it receives late rains between September and December. Ripening happens as soon as the rain stops. The region gets very dry and hot starting mid January, making for a quick harvest.
These beans are harvested between January & March at 1650m. After they are fully washed, they are laid out to dry in the sun, with added help from a solar drying machine.
