Produced together withEdwin Martinez
VarietiesRed and Yellow Bourbon, Caturra, Pache
This is the first coffee we bought directly from the farmer when we first opened our roastery in 2007. Edwin Martinez and his father run their farm in western Guatemala. Their dry mill is located in the mountainous landscape alongside their fields. Here, the washed coffee is dried under the sun rays on the patio.
We work by the values of transparent trade. This helps create a healthy relationship with the farmer and financial sustainability for them.
We pay a quality bonus to Finca Vista Hermosa that is 186% above market price ($4.20/lb FOB). The quality bonus allows the farmer to continue to produce higher quality coffee.
