In the Maya Q'qnjobal dialect from Huehuetenango, "Waykan" means "star (or light) that shines in the sky at night."
The producers are situated in the municipalities of Chajul, Quiche, Cotzal, and Nebaj and the representedethinicities are Ixil, Kiche, Q'anjobal, and Guatemalan Mestizo. Waykan coffee is produced in 55 different communities.
Today Guatemala has a very strong in-country support system for coffee producers. There is also a strong marketing presence to promote Guatemalan coffee globally. Guatemala accounts for 2.5 percent of the world's total coffee production; the country'scoffee has been a staple of Café Imports' offerings since our humble beginnings, and seeing the increase in quality has been heartwarming.
