Behind the Scenes
This lovely coffee is grown in Huehuetenango, the highest coffee-cultivating region in Guatemala. Huehuetenango means ‘Place of the Ancients’ in Nahuatl and is just right for growing coffee. Rivers and streams wind through remotely-dotted smallholder farms, most of which measure just one hectare each. The high altitudes and warm winds blowing from Mexico create prime coffee conditions that protect the cropS from frost. This extends the growing and fermentation times, which allows the beans to develop more complex flavours.
We source these beans via a speciality importer operating directly in the Huehuetenango region. In order to purchase straight from the farmer, our importer maintains several regional warehouses and buying stations. This is important: it allows the team to trade directly with locals and provide stable market access for more remote communities.
Your lovely Mail Order Me A Waterfall coffee comes from the Unión Cantinil warehouse in Huehuetenango’s heart. This carefully maintained micro-warehouse receives coffee from a radius reaching just 15km. The beans are primarily Bourbon, Caturra and Pache – varietals renowned for next-level flavour!
What Does the Score Mean?
The process of ‘cupping’ is used to give a coffee its quality score. We only source and roast speciality coffee, and for a coffee to be given this title, it must first receive a score of 80 or above. If it doesn’t get the score, it doesn’t get the name. We have a page all about coffee cupping if you want to find out more.
During the coffee roasting process, we never ‘over roast’ our coffee. Roasting is the time for us to show off the natural flavours and aromas in our coffees. If we were to roast a coffee too dark, these flavours and aromas would be lost and would be replaced with bitter and burnt tastes. We won’t ever need to hide any of the flavours from our coffees as they are all of such high quality to start with. As a result of this, all our coffees have a natural sweetness, ready and waiting to be enjoyed.
All our coffees are very different from one another. Some have a more intense flavour, such as a toffee sweetness, while others have lighter, fruity flavours. Coffee farmers and workers do an incredible job of always producing a great product. As a way of saying thank you, we will roast their coffee to its full potential.

Why buy speciality coffee from us?
By purchasing coffee from us, you’ll be helping coffee farmers and their workers around the globe. We ensure that we pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green beans. This gives the coffee farmers additional funds to invest in better living conditions and an even better harvest next year.
We aim to keep the supply chain as short as possible. This, in turn, means that more of what we pay makes it back to the coffee farmers and their farms.
Keep it up you awesome bunch.
