Las Terrazas is situated in the middle of the limestone valley in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. The valley creates a stable microclimate, protecting the farm from extreme weather conditions.This, along with chalky soils contributes to dense, syrupy body, and lovely acidity in the cup.
Large parts of the farm are protected wild forest, much of which is used to reduce soil erosion and also helps reduce plant exposure to the winds. This is based on a permaculture system which tries to reduce inputs to create a sustainable form of agriculture that respects the environment by creating a natural coffee habitat in high altitude forests.
Cupping notes: Berry chocolate, dark syrupy body
