Coffee Background

Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca La Providencia Palhu is sourced from Finca La Providencia located in the municipality of San Pedro Necta, within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. La Providencia is owned and operated by Maximiliano Palacios (Max), a third generation coffee farmer. The name of the coffee, Palhu, is formed from a combination of the family name Palacios and the department of Huehuetenango. The heart of La Providencia is a beautifully maintained mill that begins at a highpoint on the sloped property, designed to take full advantage of gravity, where the ripe cherries are placed in water and carried through the depulping process on a series of intricate canals to the drying patios below.
