Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of Guatemala's non-volcanic regions. Huehu- etenango owes much to the dry, hot winds that come in from the mountains of Mexico's Tehuantepec plain. The additional heat layers protects Huehuetenango from frost and enables coffee to grow up to 2,000 masl.


Due to the high altitude, nearly all of Huehu- etenango's producers must process their own coffee. F ortunately, t he r egion has rivers and streams in abundance, so mills can be placed almost anywhere.
