Story Behind The Coffee

Located just 35 kilometers from the capital of Guatemala City, El Guatalon is situated in the Belen Village of Santa Rosa de Lima, where coffee grows surrounded by lush reserves of pine, cypress, and other native tree species. Over the past 60 years, El Guatalon has been run and managed by four generations of coffee producers, maintaining a domineering legacy as model high quality coffee producers within the area. The farm was named after the ancient term “guatal,” a term used throughout Central America that refers to an area of land where cattle graze once the maize harvest is complete. With its 35 hectares of natural forest, El Guatalon prides itself on conservation and biodiversity preservation.Hiking through this natural wilderness, speckled with coffee, is truly a majestic experience–filled with native birds and clean air.Divided into five micro regions categorized by soil and altitude, El Guatalon teems with life amongst its various climates and ecosystems. The owner and managerGuillermo Antonio Juarez Solares studied as an agronomist before returning to the family farm to transfer his knowledge to the coffee trees. Guillermo was able to successfully fend off La Roya, or Coffee Leaf Rust, the detrimental coffee disease, with his agricultural methods to reduce the spread.The wet mill used to process the coffee utilizes water from natural wells. In order to preserve resources and maintain surrounding ecosystems, the El Guatalon wet mill practices water conservation by practicing water recirculation. After processing, the water is treated in sediment piles whilst the pulp is used for natural fertilizer.After being washed, the coffee is spread on concrete patios to dry in the open sun for 10-12 days.2021 was a momentous year for El Guatalon, as they were able to secure 20th place in the Cup of Excellence. Their dedication to environmental protection and coffee quality has allowed ElGuatalon to win numerous competitions, making this coffee a true gem amongst coffee throughout Guatemala.
