This beautiful coffee is from a farm called Finca Ceylan y Anexos, owned by Dariush Echeverria Zachrisson.
The farm resides in the San Miguel Pochuta area of Chimaltenango (Atitlan Region) with coffee grown at altitude of 3,500 – 4,500 above sea level in rich volcanic soil that is well drained, deep and stony with a pH of 5.5.
The coffee is processed using traditional wet mill and harvested from October through to March.
This farm has been producing coffee since 1870 and is certified Organic by OCIA/JAS/CAAQ EU 2092-91/Suissee Ordnance.
The farm grows Banana as coffee shade and has various water sources that have been protected. Hunting and fishing is prohibited to conserve the natural faun and flora.
Coffee residues from the wet mill are used as organic fertilizer in the coffee plantation, creating a self-sufficient system. Water used in the wet mill process is filtered through oxidation tanks to avoid contamination in river basins.
Please kindly note, we have discontinued this lot of coffee from late 2014.
