THE COFFEE STORY

The Huehue region is one of the non volcanic coffee producing regions of the country. Due to its topography, there are multiple micro climates which are perfect for coffee production, giving the coffee nice fruit notes. 
The farm Finca Joya Grande was established in 1976 as a very small coffee plantation operation.
Given the farm's topography, coffee is the only agricultural product that can be planted. with there quality production, all coffee pulp resulting from the wet mill process is utilized as organic fertilizer. 
The Finca Vasquez farm was established in 1980 when Don Jose Vasquez moved from Colotenango to the coffee lands La Libertad, Huehuetenango. The current owners of the farm are Genaro and Juan Vasquez (son and grandson of Don Jose). Both of whom are quality oriented! They keep the same practices and varietals as Don Jose once did.
The Finca La Maravilla farm was acquired in 1997 from an extension of El Injerto II. The property was abandoned at the time, however, with time and dedication the owner and his father converted the land into a beautiful and well-maintained coffee operation. To not cause any environmental impact on the farm, all weed control is done by hand, no herbicides are used.
