This is our best-selling blend, sophisticated and balanced, perfect just by itself or combined with milk to make a delicious comforting beverage. The Gento Blend combines many traditional Guatemalan varieties like Bourbón, Caturra, and Catuai, from three different regions, Huehuetenango, Fraijanes, and San Marcos, which combined turn out to be a sweet, creamy, and bright cup of coffee.
The region of Fraijanes is located in the mountains surrounding the Valley of Ermita where Guatemala City is located. Coffee in Fraijanes is harvested from late December to March at high altitudes ranging between 4,300-6,000 feet. Volcanic pumice soil, high altitudes, plenty of rain, and an active volcano characterize the region.
The region of Huehuetenango crosses the Cordillera de Los Cuchamatanes with regions higher than 11,800 feet, the mountainous terrain creates various unique microclimates that create unique fruity coffees.
San Marcos is the warmest of Guatemala's coffee-growing regions and also has the highest rainfall. It has the most intense rainy season and the earliest flowering of any area. The region has a wide range of altitudes with volcanic soil and a microclimate influence from the Pacific Ocean.
