About this coffee

This coffee was introduced to us by our good friends at Los Volcanes, a company that focuses on creating coffees that reflect the identity of the people who grow them and focuses on building a human centered supply chain, specifically in Guatemala and Brazil. We’re excited to bring this coffee in through them and look forward to the continued relationship in the future. Regarding this particular farm, Josué Morales manages the 40-hectare Finca (Spanish word for farm) El Potrero alongside the farm’s owner, Juan De Leon.

Historically, this land had been used for cow grazing, which depleted much of the soil of its natural nutrients, but, through continuous efforts and innovation, Josué and Juan have worked to improve soil health on the farm by testing ideas and protocols originally developed at Finca La Esperanza in Antigua. Over the last several years, close to 1 thousand metric tons of pulp from wet-milling and harvesting coffee have been re-integrated into the soil at El Potrero to promote soil health. Additionally, Josué and Juan have found ways to utilize the natural foliage from the pines on the farm to trap organic matter and create a healthy cushion of moisture in the soil as the seasons change.

Beyond the soil program, Josué and Juan continue to invest in opportunities to propagate new varieties of coffee at El Potrero. In the next several years, they hope to plant 44 more hectares of coffee in partnership with genetic labs doing work in Ethiopia and Latin America to diversify the scope of varietals grown on the farm.

The Anacafe 14 varietal constitutes the majority of the current planted area on the farm. This is a 5th and 6th generation Anacafe 14, and it is typ- ically picked and then dry fermented for 36 hours before it is washed. Drying on this farm takes 21 days. We’re excited for you to try this delicious organic coffee.
