About This Coffee

This coffee comes from Finca Palo Blanco, located in La Democracia, Huehuetenango, Guatemala.

Located in the municipality of La Democracia, department of Huehuetenango, it is 55 km. from the departmental head. Thre region sits at altitudes rangeing between 1400 masl to 2050 masl. The average rainfall is 1.5 meters per year and it has loam soils. The region produces some of the best coffees of the country.

Finca Palo Blanco is a unique farm in the region that guarantees traceability and eco-friendly practices. It is owned by Ivan Ovalle Altuve. The farm undergoes a constant renewal of plantations with carefully selected varieties to improve production and resistance to diseases. The coffee is shadegrown under native trees and the improvements in the management of honey, wastewater, garbage and waste are made in a very strict manner. 
The farm has an extension of 20 Ha approximately for ecological forest reserve.

The farm belongs to the Ovalle family since 1990 and is categorized as a  small private farm. Its production has varied from the beginning as it has been constantly renewed and currently has several certification seals that make it special and unique in the region. Due to its topographic conditions, it receives the warm air from the lower parts of the Democracy and allows its harvest to be carried forward, entering the market with special coffees and with accentuated acidity, during the months of February and March.

Among the social projects that the farm manages, is the support of the community's school, in which the farm makes annual donations for desks and plates.
