Todos Santos

washed

The small producers group of “Todos Santos”, in the Huehuetenango Region, lives in the small village of San Martin Teogal. This small community plants and produces its coffee on the very top of the Cuchumatanes Mountain Range, the highest in Guatemala. Family and neighbours work on and live from the coffee plantations. They proudly produce up to 2500 bags per year.

Being isolated so far up the mountains their bourbon coffee plants are hardly ever affected by rust. The annual rainfall of 2500 mm and clay/sandy soil guarantee optimal growth for their cherries, which grow to a rich violet red under the shade of the chalum trees. They have a small wet mill and the coffee is 100% sundried.

The Todos Santos Community is one of the only ones that keep all of their Mayan traditions active, from the spoken dialect “Mam” to the 260-day Mayan calender “Tzolkin”. Women, men and children wear the customary attire. For men this means red and white striped pants with a large blue collar on the shirt. For women it is the traditional purple “hupil” blouse with a blue skirt.

Coffees from Guatemala

Guatemala’s coffee belt runs along a chain of 34 volcanoes that crosses the country from East to West and benefits the coffee production with soils rich in minerals and nutrients. The soil is mostly volcanic, limestone and pumice. Consistent rainfall and year round warm climate guarantee the crops. The coffee is mostly grown under Gravilea and Inga shade trees which make 7% of the national forest. It is always hand-picked and dried under the sun, except for the Cobán coffee, which production region is sometimes too humid.

Main production areas: San Marcos, Huehuetenango, Atitlán, Acatenango, Antigua, Cobán, Fraijanes, Oriente.

Cup Profile: A fragrant, full bodied coffee with pleasant citrus acidity. Depending on the region the coffee can vary from intense acidity and fruit notes to delicate sweetness and chocolatey.

Export bag size: 69 kg, specialties in 30 kg bags

Total number of coffee farmers: over 125.000 coffee farmers
