El Coyequal is a village that meets several famous producing areas from Huehuetenango in every direction. Its enclosed by Todos Santos, Rio Ocho and La Democracia. The village itself is of about 500 people, and the producing area we work with is estimated to be about 100 planted hectares of varying degrees of productivity. This area, being enclosed in a valley, receives late rains between September and December. Ripening happens very evenly as soon as the rain stops. The region gets very dry and hot starting mid January making for a quick harvest.
