This is a fully traceable single producer lot from our importer partners Onyx Coffee. Carlos calls his farm El Sendero which means 'the path' in English. In 2002 Carlos bought 2 hectares of land with money he had saved up after working in the United States for seven years. He had worked in coffee in Guatemala in the past, so was already very familiar with all the work that goes into owning your own farm. When he is not busy with coffee, Carlos runs a small tienda in town that many people in the area enjoy. In 2017 he started construction on another bodega to help store his coffee. He is dedicated to improving his farm and is currently finding ways to sustainably irrigate and fertilize his land. This lot is subtle, sweet, and super clean!
