We're truly honored to be able to offer this excellent, award winning coffee to you all this year. Max Perez produced this Pacamara Natural on his farm, Finca La Hermosa, in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. This past year, Max entered this very coffee into the national Cup of Excellence competition and came in 9th place. Max has already entered coffees from his farm into national competitions this year and has received 2nd and 3rd placements. We have a very limited supply of this coffee, which is highlighted by its incredible aroma and bright, tea-like florality. This is truly a coffee to cherish and enjoy!

 

On Finca La Hermosa from the Importer, Yepocapa Coffee:

"Max Perez is a 5th generation coffee farmer. He and his family are originally from Huehuetenango and have a family farm there that is run by his father. 10 years ago, Max and wife had an opportunity to buy an abandoned farm that has since become Finca La Hermosa.

Since the farm had been abandoned for a significant amount of time, everything needed to be renovated. Plants were pulled up, fields were tilled, raked, and maintained, shade trees were planted, and the construction of a wet mill ensued. This amount of investment is actually quite risky. Since the coffee market is super volatile and doesn’t always offer profit margins, farmers who make investments like that are often driven by something more than profit margins... It’s what I really admire about Max... It’s a farm we’re really proud to represent and a farmer we’re even more excited about. His coffees are stellar but his personality and character is what drives us to want to continue supporting him year after year."
