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, 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.
Today, Diana and Hector run three farms in the Huehuetenango region. They are doing their best to ensure mainly three things: quality, environment preservation and good work conditions.
FINCA BUENOS AIRES
Finca Buenos Aires is located in the heart of the coffee zone of Huehuetenango region. It is at 1,500 masl. All the coffee is processed on the farm premises. This coffee was dried on raised beds.
They are working hard to develop their farms and use best pre and post harvest practices. They have been making sure that coffee is carefully selected at brix 20-23, sorted, depulped and fermented dry for 36 hours. After that coffee is washed with a mechanic coffee washing machine, sorted in “caño colombiano” (washing channel), dried and reaching 10.5% humidity.
