Finca Las Naranjas is owned by Don Ruben Ajualip Gonzalez. He has been one of the most important collaborators in the project. Don Ruben inherited his farm from his father some years ago, but it was in 2005 when the coffee crop started to improve. The farm is located in Caserio Chuachacalte and has an area of 2.45 HAs of which, all is planted with coffee. His family also produces corn and beans for their own consumption.

Finca Las Anonas, owned by Don Pascual Teletor, is also a strong contributor to this lot. The farm is located in the village of Chimacho in Cubulco.

Don Pascual is also one of the most collaborative producers in the Volcafe Way group. Don Pascual used to live and work in the U.S., but he always wanted to come back to Cubulco to become a coffee producer. He currently has a plot of 8.4 HAs of which 1.45 HAs are planted with coffee. Besides coffee he also has other crops, such as beans and corn, for his own consumption.

Origin Report
Guatemalan producers are constantly looking for better growing conditions: richer soil; advantageous micro-climates; and ideal shade conditions. Farmers are investing in moving to higher grounds to increase their options for growing specialty coffees. Producers are dedicating lands at higher altitudes to planting traditional varietals that produce differentiated cup qualities. Read more in our Guatemala Origin Report.
