Highland Huehue logo

Of the three non-volcanic regions, Huehuetenango is the highest and driest under cultivation. Thanks to the dry, hot winds that blow into the mountains from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, the region is protected from frost, allowing Highland Huehue to be cultivated up to 6,500 feet (2,000 meters).  The extreme remoteness of Huehuetenango virtually requires all producers to process their own coffee.  Fortunately, the region has an almost infinite number of rivers and streams, so a mill can be placed almost anywhere.
