WAYKAN

Waykan is the name of a Regional Select program that was created to highlight the unique profiles that are inherent to various microclimates in the Huehuetenango area.

Every year they organize a competition for farmers. The coffees with the right sensory profile are bought and together they create the Waykan.

The competition is based on cup quality and character, seeking a balance of “taste of place” with availability and price. These lots are built as blends from coffees that cup out between 84–87 on our 100-point cupping scale, and come with regional and often microregional traceability, but are not farm- or producer-specific.

Waykan coffees are chosen for their pristine example of the dynamic character of coffees from Huehuetenango, with their crisp acidity reminiscent of lemon, grape, or apple, and a balance of toffee and sweet nuts, like almond. In the Maya Q’qnjobal dialect in the region, “waykan” means “star, or light that shines in the sky at night.”
