QUEJINA Guatemala

Crisp, sweetly nut-toned. Hazelnut butter, baker’s chocolate, cherry, cedar, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned in structure with brisk acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The sweet finish consolidates to an inviting nutty chocolate in the short and spice-toned florals in the long. The bottom line: A friendly, straightforward, pleasing Guatemala cup.
Ken Davids, November 2018

Nicolas Ramirez’s Finca Quejina is near the town of Petatán in the western highlands of Guatemala's Huehuetenango region. With only about 14,000 inhabitants, Petatán is heavily steeped in centuries-old Mayan traditions and in recent years it has become known for its cultural preservation. In fact, although the official language of Guatemala is Spanish, more than 80% of the Petatán population speaks a Mayan language known as Popti'.

The Ramirez family began Quejina as a timber farm. Nicolas converted it to coffee cultivation and now hopes to expand by buying more land nearby. He plans to expand conservation programs on the farm as well as offer more microlots of specific cultivars such as this exceptional one.
