A double hitter, this edition of The Filter Blend introduces a mouthwatering blend of flavours from El Carpintero and a first-time showcase, La Montaña, both from San Antonio Huista, Huehuetenango.
Produced in the same microregion, these two components highlight the diverse terroir within Huehuetenango - striking the perfect balance between the classic profile of El Carpintero and the luscious, honeyed richness of La Montaña.
A second-generation coffee farmer, Herminio's farm is rich in birdlife, which is why he named it El Carpintero, after the Woodpecker. "From when I was a little boy, I used to be in the fields, and my dad used to explain and teach me how to work on the farm. About 20 years ago, I inherited the land, and I have always worked on it to sustain my family. I am now 57 years old and excited to continue learning new processes.”
La Montaña is where Emilio, his wife, and two children have been farming for more than 20 years now. Depulping the coffee the same day it's picked, they let it ferment for 24 hours and, after a second soak, dry it on a patio for about five days. "The farm has been our source of income and many of our most important moments were born there. Our farm gives us hope for a better future.”
