Sourcing: The lot from Finca de Dios was sourced directly from the farm La Bolsa (Farmers Ellen Prentice w/ husband Stuart and daughter Ashley). Finca de Dios is a 27 hectare farm in Fraijanes, Guatemala owned and managed by Ellen and Stuart Prentice and their daughter Ashley. Ellen inherited the land from her father, who purchased the farm in 1971 to keep horses and use as a retreat from Guatemala City. Ellen, who has a degree in Agricultural Engineering, expanded coffee production from just a few hectares to the majority of the farm’s land area, except only for the naturally forested areas which she maintains for biodiversity and wildlife. To this day Ellen continues to manage the farm as its chief agronomist, caring for the health of the coffee trees and shade cover, training workers on selective picking, and overseeing post-harvest processing standards. Stuart, an Electrical Engineer, works at the farm on weekends designing and maintaining the wet mill and infrastructure. Ashley has a masters in Coffee Science and Economics and is a certified Q-grader. She is in charge of quality control, lot building, and marketing their coffee through building direct relationships with roasters.
All you have to do is make your selections of how many bags you would like and we will get you started on the next roast date (currently Tuesdays).
