More about this coffee below:

Finca San Diego Buena Vista is very appropriately named, as the farm has a gorgeous view of two of the region’s volcanoes: Volcan Acatenango and Volcan de Fuego. The farm is located in the department of Acatenango, a short 25 km west of Antigua.

The San Diego Buena Vista farm has been in the Bock family for three generations. The family owns a total of 325 hectares, half of which is protected natural forest. Coffee is produced on 135 hectares and 45 hectares are reserved for producing avocado, which is sold nationally. The farm is well diversified, and has produced blackberries, peaches and honey in the past. There are over 300 pelibuey sheep that help with weed control on the farm.

The Bock family is committed to exclusively planting higher-quality Arabica varietals and the majority of the farm is composed of Bourbon, Caturra and Tipica. 15 hectares of Geisha are sold separately as a single varietal.

Harvest begins in November and only the ripest cherries are selectively hand-picked. After wet milling and soaking, the beans are briefly sun-dried, and then transferred to Guardiolas until they reach their optimum humidity. The coffees are sent to the export mill of Waelti Schoenfeld, where they are rested, sorted and prepared for shipment.
