This specialty washed Guatemalan coffee from the ASPROCDEGUA-producing organization of small farms in the Huehuetenango region is a mild and sweet coffee with a citric undertone. ASPROCDEGUA (Asociación de Productores de Café Diferenciados y Especiales de Guatemala) was founded by a master cupper named Noe Quintero and has 664 contributing members, 394 of whom have organic certification. The producing members own small farms, averaging 2 hectares each, on which they cultivate coffee as well as other crops for diversification, such as bananas, oranges, lemons, avocados, guava, and cassava.

Located in Western Guatemala along the border with Mexico, the Huehuetenango region is renowned for producing some of the finest coffees in Latin America. This can be attributed to the area's diverse range of characteristics, including its climate, altitude, water sources, and traditional coffee varieties. The region's high altitude and cool climate provide an ideal environment for growing high-quality coffee beans. Moreover, the volcanic soil and ample rainfall contribute to the development of distinct flavor profiles in coffee.

Huehuetenango is also known for its use of traditional coffee varieties, such as Bourbon and Caturra, which are cultivated on small farms by local producers. The farmers use traditional methods in growing and processing coffee beans, resulting in some of the most exceptional coffees in the region.

Generally, ripe coffee is depulped the same or the following day and allowed to ferment for anywhere between 12–48 hours, depending on the climate. The coffee is then washed clean of its mucilage and spread on patios or raised beds to dry.

Using a meticulous cultivation process and traditional washed processing method, the farm has produced a harmonious and sophisticated coffee with a flavor profile that features notes of almond, cranberry, and cocoa, as well as a mild, sweet taste with a citric undertone. This coffee has a delicate body (2/5) and low acidity (2/5), making it an ideal choice for those who prefer a smooth and balanced cup.
