Guatemala - Doña Maria VelasquezGood Folks Coffee
Todos Santos Cuchumatan, Huehuetenango, Guatemala
Finca El Rinconcito
We visited Doña Maria on her farm in the spring of 2018. At that point, she had only sold her coffees to be blended with other coffees from the region. During the visit, we asked that her 2019 harvest be kept separate so that we could purchase her entire lot as a microlot and work directly with her. When we returned in the spring of 2019, the first two pickings of Maria's 2019 crop were ready for us to taste, and they were delicious. We are excited to share that coffee with you.
Doña Maria has been farming coffee for just 5 years. She maintains her farm with the help of her daughter and cousins. Along with coffee, Maria farms a variety of fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, potatoes, cabbage, and papaya.
