This is a blend of Guatemalan and Sumatran origins. See the origin details for each below.
Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of the three non-volcanic coffee regions under cultivation. Thanks to the dry, hot winds that blow into the mountains from Mexico’s Tehauntepec 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 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. Zaculeu, named after the pre-Colombian Mayan archeological site in Huehuetenango, is a blend of fine coffee sourced from a select group of small producers. This coffee is one of the most intensely flavored and fragrant coffees in all of Latin America.
Permata Gayo sources its coffees in the Aceh Region. The Coop was founded in 2006 by a group of 50 farmers from 5 different villages in the Benner Meriah district. Today their coffee is cultivated in 37 affiliated villages in and around this district by over 2,100 members. Members process and market over 60% of their products through their own processing facilities and export arm while selling the remaining volumes to other exporters. The majority of the members of the cooperative are smallholder farmers, whose plot sizes don’t exceed 2-5 hectares of land. The production process followed on the farm is fully organic with no application of chemical herbicides or pesticides. They only apply compost to guarantee soil fertility from year to year through the use of livestock manure, green waste, and red cherry skin. Permata Gayo’s coffee is processed at their facilities in the Takengon area (in the mountains). Once the coffee is at 13% moisture it is trucked to their Medan warehouse where it is dried to 12%, then graded and loaded in containers. Permata Gayo’s coffee remains traceable to the village it came from throughout this process.
