Hunapu is a blend that is created by Bella Vista, the mill that I've visited for the past two years in Antigua. Their mission with this blend is to support small producers in the Antigua region who are trying to break into the specialty market. As I'm sure you know, it takes a fair amount of capital to start raising the quality of your coffee, capital that often small producers do not have. When producers sell their coffee to the mill for the Hunapu blend, it is cupped and graded and the producers are paid more as their quality increases year to year. That extra cash then can go towards investing in infrastructure and labor to raise quality; eventually, if the cupping lab starts grading a producer's coffee at a certain level, they could offer that coffee as a microlot to buyers like us who will pay even more. It's pretty cool!!! This year when I was at the mill I got talking to one producer who graduated from the Hunapu program into selling his coffee as a microlot and he was really happy about how the program works. I tried to buy his coffee but it got snatched up. Drats! Anyways, this year's Hunapu lot that we chose is 100% Caturra and is mighty sweet and clean.
