Hunapu means "mountain flower" in the K’iche language (the most widespread of the indigenous languages in Guatemala) and it is also the indigenous name for Vulcan de Agua, a volcano located near the city of Antigua. The processing mill Bella Vista is located at the foot of the volcano. Bella Vista is a farm and a wet and dry mill. The Spanish term for this type of facility is "beneficio".
Hunapu consists of specially selected smallholder farmers who own small 1-4 hectare farms around Antigua between 1500 and 1800 meters that bring their cherries to the Bella Vista mill. Hunapu coffee is sorted into day lots/picking dates.
After delivery to Bella Vista, the coffee is wet processed and fermented for 24 hours before it is dried on the patio. This particular lot is a Caturra variety separation.
This lot was sourced via our new partnership with Collaborative Coffee Source who work exclusively with the Bella Vista mill in Guatemala.
Each bag contains 340 grams (12 ounces) of whole beans. If you would like us to grind your coffee, please let us know which method you use at home and it will be a pleasure to prepare it for you!
