Q’anil is a coffee grown and harvested by the members of the Rio Azul Cooperativo located in Jacaltenango, deep in the Huehuetenango state of northern Guatemala. Q’anil is the name of the mountain the coffee is grown on, and also a local legend that dates back to the time of the Mayans, from whom the Jakaltenans are direct descendents. The coffee is processed by our good friends at Los Volcanes coffee based in Antigua. They work with Rio Azul on wet-milling, and then finish off the coffeein their dry mill at Beneficio Esperanza before exporting. The result is a coffee with a mellow friendly acidity that is bursting with sweetness and a subtle complexity not often seen. This is a coffee that can shine anyway you brew it.
