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 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. Ashley has a Masters degree in Coffee Science and Economics and is a certified Q-grader.
