El Templo


El Templo is a coffee blend that reflects the beauty, history and culture of Huehuetenango and its Mayan archaeological site, Zaculeu. The name Zaculeu means “white earth” in the Man and K’iche’ and Q’anjoba’l languages and was the capital of the Mam Kingdom during the Postclassic period. The site is located on the outskirts of the city of Huehuetenango on fertile soil near the Selegua River and overlooks this river, which flows west of the city. It also houses a series of temple pyramids with talud-tablero style architecture and double staircases and has become a popular tourist attraction.

Huehuetenango is still very well known today for its climate, landscapes, long history, and temples. The people here, the coffee farming families who produce amazing coffees, work surrounded by mountains and beautiful, perfectly blue lagoons that are worth visiting like Zaculeu.

El Templo coffee has notes of sweet honey, vanilla, yellow fruits, tangerines, oranges, and a juicy body.
