Guatemala Los VolcanosGuatemala
The Zelaya family has been producing coffee for decades, and its experience shows in every cup. Some of the cherries come from the Zelaya’s own farms, while others come from experienced coffee families in the surrounding areas.
The Zelayas focus on several agricultural techniques to improve soil health and overall quality, including pruning, soil enrichment and disease prevention methods. They also work with hundreds of small farmers in the surrounding areas to help them achieve similarly sound environmental practices, often processing their cherries at the family mill.
- A mixture of small holder farms and larger estates make up the mainly washed production of Guatemala. Guatemala really does offer it all. Producers in Guatemala are passionate and careful with their crop, and whilst local infrastructure may not always favour them, this does little to deter the determination for producing ever better cupping coffees year after year.
