THE COFFEE STORY
The Guayabales lots have consistently showed a hard candy sweetness and great acidity. The farmer Pedro uses aggressive pruning methods more than most of his siblings and it seems to be working well for him. His yields are more streamlined from year to year. There is some shade from trees as well as shade from the steep shape of the land itself, the combination of the trees and slope bringing shade during the early morning and often fog in the afternoon, help to slow growth.
Guayabales, like all farms in Guatemala has had its challenges. While he has mostly overcome rust in the past years, the difficult road to Hoja Blanca makes the harvest difficult, especially after heavy rains. Pedro's goal is to continue to improve his lots, adding different varieties and over time improving processing techniques.
