We have been enjoying huehue for many years. We buy a 5-pound bag and grind out own. We don’t drink any other coffee. Full-bodied and heady, huehue can be brewed as strong as you like without being bitter. We use a French press, and we both agree it’s the best coffee we’ve ever had. We wanted to be sure our coffee was fairly traded, so buying directly from Guatemalan / Mayan co-ops is also very important to us.

All of Maya Earth coffee is great, but this one’s my favorite! I just love everything about it
