Juan Domingo starts with a vibrant fruitiness, touched with a bit of a tannic foundation that reminds us of white grapes and ripe plums. This further develops into a creamy sweetness, marked by milk chocolate and hazelnut; ultimately ending in an aftertaste that reminds us of sparkling rosé. This coffee is a beautiful representation of the best Huehuetenango has to offer — approachable, yet sophisticated. It is the perfect cup to share with just about anyone in any setting.

Juan Domingo is a member of the CODECH cooperative, based in Concepción Huista; a small town in northern Huehuetenango. Spyhouse has purchased from this group since the very beginning of our roasting program. Last year, our Director of Coffee, Tony Querio, visited the group to judge their micro-lot competition. Juan Domingo’s lot was Tony’s personal favorite. He found that coffees from the village of Canalaj carried all the hallmarks of Huehuetenango’s coffees with rich chocolate and red fruit, but added a little more delicacy. These coffees were a little more vibrant and the chocolate notes were not as heavy, but more creamy. Of these, Juan’s was the clear standout. This year we were able to continue our relationship with him and were surprised to see that his coffee was so similar to last year’s lot, but cleaner and brighter.
