Hunapu returns! 2022 marks our seventh season purchasing coffees from this collective of producers located just outside of Antigua, Guatemala. Thanks to the community building efforts of our long-time partner, Beneficio Bella Vista, this will be our third season offering a smaller lot separation exclusively from members of the Zeladas family.

Hunapu is the indigenous Kʼicheʼ name given to Volcán de Agua (one of three volcanoes surrounding the city of Antigua), and serves as the title for a group of 300 smallholders that live around the base of the volcano and deliver coffee cherry to Bella Vista. Producers in this group have been working with Bella Vista now for years, participating in frequent outreach programs on topics like plant nutrition, and tissue management. The combination of educational programs coupled with access to a team of agronomists and cupping feedback have all played major roles in why coffee from Hunapu seems to taste better and better with each passing year.

On our last trip to Antigua, we had the pleasure of visiting some of the Hunapu farms with Bella Vista’s newest team member at the time - Fidel. Don Fidel worked with Guatemala’s National Coffee Association (ANACAFE) his entire life as an agronomist, and now his sole focus is on the Hunapu project. Fidel is the point person for Hunapu producers, handling most communication and arranging training seminars. Additionally, a big focus the past few seasons has been placed on increased transparency with the group. Fidel has created a system to begin mapping the exact location and details of each farm scattered alongside Volcán de Agua. These efforts have paved the way for us to now continue purchasing this lot from the Zeladas family each year.

Hunapu Zeladas is always a very structured and comforting coffee. Ample fruit flavors, like plum, orange, and apple, are rounded and tethered by sweeter flavors like brown sugar, baking spices, and milk chocolate. It’s no surprise this is one of our favorite go-to daily drinkers! We’re tasting candied orange, black plum, apple butter, fruit cake, cinnamon roll, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, nougat, baking spice, milk chocolate.
