In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect from Huehuetenango, “Waykan” means “star (or light) that shines in the sky at night.”

Today, Guatemala has a very strong in-country support system for coffee producers. They also have a strong marketing presence to promote Guatemalan coffee globally. Guatemala accounts for 2.5 of the world’s total coffee production. Guatemalan coffee has been a staple of Cafe Imports’ offerings since our humble beginnings, and seeing the increase in quality has been heartwarming. We can’t think of many other countries where excellent coffee is in such high abundance. Marathon cuppings in Guatemala are invigorating and exciting; quite literally there is an incredible amount of low hanging fruit in Guatemala.

Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Idido is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe.
