The plantation was started in the middle of the 19th century by Manuel Díaz and is now owned and managed by the Herrera Family. Next to the plantation is a private, natural reserve with old forests and a large animal diversity.

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.

Total number of coffee farmers: over 125.000 coffee farmers
