    ha ha ha, not even close. of course, Huehue. but there is something I have to explain.

    Antigua region is the richest region/farms among all the regions in Guatemala.
    that means they (owners/farmers) can spend as much money as possible to build the best water station, best equipment...etc to process the beans, as best and clean as possible. so usually, their coffee is very clean, high standard and generally very good.

    however, Huehue is really different. this is the region that has the poorest farms in guatemala and also there are quite a few farms which are world known, such as Injerto farm (#1 farm in Guatemala) and many others. however, what makes this region so special is their micro climate and richest soil in Guatemala.
    since Huehue has the biggest mountain range, biggest coffee growing region, most diverse climate/rain...etc, they really have all kind of different coffees.
    AND THE BEST PRICING if you can find some small farms.... so many great gems everywhere and you can find so many if you come and visit and look hard enough.

    Let me give you an example.
    I have been exporting beans internationally for past 8 years.
    and my customers are all micro lot, specialty coffee buyers.
    Only once in past 8 years, one of my customers bought Yellow bourbon from a farm in Antigua, finca colombia is the name. you can get the info from website.

    everyone else, they travel to huehue and do cupping in 3 cupping stations that we have, and they buy from huehue.
    generally 80% of sales is from Huehue (all specialty beans, 85 to 92 points) and other 20% is from Acatenango and from our own farm in Quetzaltenango.

    It sounds like we agree.. funny you mention Finca Colombia - I featured them a year or two in my coffee club. This year I'm bringing in my Guat from Huehue / Finca La Maravilla ... patiently waiting on the container
