Bright notes of apple and coffee cherries, with a tart, fruity acidity and smooth mouthfeel. Complex, floral finish.
Waykan is produced on a limestone soil typical from the Huehuetenango region, which brings all the typicality of this terroir. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect from Huehuetenango, waykan means “star (or light) that shines in the sky at night.” (And for the record, the region’s name is commonly pronounced “way-way-teh-NAN-go.”). This coffee is a “regional blend”, beans of high cupping scores and displaying similar cup profiles are blended together. This is how it works: farmers who own farms of any size are invited to bring their coffee to be cupped. Whether they bring 2 or 200 bags, their coffee is sampled and scored: Coffees that score 85–87 with the clean and crisp Huehuetenango profile are blended into the Regional Select lot, while coffees scoring 88 and above are kept separate and offered as microlots, with price incentives attached to reward that quality.The producers of Waykan are situated in the municipalities of Chajul, Quiche, Cotzal, and Nebaj.
