Guatemala Santa Isabel
Santa Isabel is located near the town of San Cristóbal Verapaz, in the cool rainy reaches of Cobán. The farm is situated on 300 acres of high, fertile land. Don Luis and his son, also named Luis but nicknamed Wicho, manage the farm as general and agricultural manager, respectively. When Don Luis first planted the farm, Cobán didn’t necessarily have a reputation for high quality coffee. Don Luis and Wicho knew that the region had more to offer. By placing their attention on improved cultivation techniques and perfecting their drying practices, they transformed the quality of their coffee over the course of the last decade. Their coffees have placed in Guatemala’s Cup of Excellence twice.
