The dry and stable climate of this part of Huehue is begging for a juicy natural. Drying is even, with no unexpected changes in humidity or other unexpected weather patern. The result is a deep, fruity profile that offers wonderful nuances.


Las Codornices is a unique place - a farm located in the heart of the driest area in Huehuetenengo, where... no one grows coffee. Well, almost no one! Diana and Hector have created a unique terroir, accomplishing the almost impossible. The plantation is irrigated using a meticulously designed system, based on reservoirs and water from the river flowing in the valley. An original on a global scale!


Next to Diana and Hector we are short and thin as a snake’s ass! They are just a pair of heretics. They grow coffee where no one else has ever dared. Dry, something like on the Kazakh steppe, but they managed with a clever irrigation system. In the cup, the essence of both variety and terroir. You’ll find a dense and sticky body, with notes of forest fruits, a whole range of caramel and chocolate stories, all rounded off with ripe acidity.


The coffee is packed in a brown jar made of PET, 100% recyclable or reusable. In case you're thinking "oh no, plastic!", bear in mind that standard coffee packaging is also made of plastic (and a few other materials, making it often harder to recycle). We also thought about glass, but it's heavier, more expensive, breakable and, wait for it, has the same or greater (sic!) environmental impact! A plastic jar turns out to be pretty eco-friendly, just remember to put it in the right container, or find a creative way to reuse it at home.
