    FROM THE ROASTER: 

    We love to bring in and share unusual experiences. This is exactly what we have here. A beautiful natural processed Typica, grown in the driest and harshest part of Huehuetenango where no one else grows coffee.

    Diana and Hector were born into coffee and it has been part of their family history since the late 1800s, when their ancestors arrived at the isolated land of Aqua Dulce in Huehuetenango.

    They established a sugar cane plantation at first, with not much luck. They came to a decision to make a change and plant coffee. That is when their love and passion for coffee initiated and stayed within the family till this day.

    Diana’s and Hector’s focus is their community. They try to find ways to support people that depend on coffee production like for example purchasing 150 sheep that not only helps to keep their farm weed free but also provides meat for their workers.

    Apart from sheep they use in all their farms, they also plant trees that produce edible seeds rich in protein and fruits full of vitamins that are also available for their local community.

    Diana and Hector are an example of a new approach to coffee production. Their farms and management style are focused on maximum efficiency and sustainability. 

    Las Codornices is one out of three Ovalle’s farms and their command centre. A trip to the farm is not like your typical coffee excursion. The area is so dry that nobody else ever thought about establishing coffee production over there. 

    From their house you can grasp a beautiful view at a mountain range, some coffee trees and two retention tanks Diana and Hector have built to harvest precious rainwater to use it for irrigation. Each row of coffee trees within a 9-hectares area is ready to be irrigated at any time.

    Since water in this part of the region is a huge issue, they very rarely process coffee as washed, focusing on getting expertise in honeys and naturals and the results are great.
