Background:

This is the 3rd time we've bought this coffee, it is such a good representation of modern Guatemalan coffee in that it's clean, well processed and complex.

Santa Isabel is a family business that started as a coffee plantation in 1875, when it's ownership granted by Guatemala ́s President at the time to the great grandfather of the current owners, Luis Valdes. Valdes family managed to buy Santa Isabel back in 1961 after it was sold in the 1890's. The coffee from Santa Isabel is now produced by fourth and fifth generations of the Valdes Family.

The coffee farm has 187 hectares of coffee plantation where it produces strictly hard bean coffee of bourbon, caturra, catuai, sarchimor and pache varieties. Inga and macadamia trees help provide shade and biodiversity for the coffee plants.

Santa Isabel employs 40 full time workers year-round, and up to 500 seasonal labourers are employed during the busy harvest season.
