Background Details

This coffee is sourced from a family-owned estate located in the municipality of La Democracia within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Finca Huixoc is owned and operated by Jose Alejandro Solis, a third generation coffee producer, who continues the traditions passed down from his grandfather, Jose Olivia Chavez, who established the estate in the 1940’s.  The estate’s name, Huixoc, is an indigenous Mayan word that means "spring water", reflecting the abundance of spring water sources on the estate, which provide year round hydropower for the mill operations and pristine water for processing coffee.
