Guatemala Espresso - Finca El Recuerdo

Guatemala Espresso - Finca El Recuerdo

from 8.00

Red berries, complex sweetness with a round body and a great aroma

Augusto is the second generation of coffee growers and the farm – Finca El Recuerdo – “The Memory” is the best gift their father could have left them.

Augusto started walking the farm since he was just a boy, following his dad on days at the field and by his side during the processing of the cherries at harvest time. It was in 1975, when his father passed away that he finally took over the whole farm and his responsibilities. Knowing that he had to be good to the environment to have a sustainable farm, he has been guided by Rainforest Alliance guidelines for years now.

At the moment there are factors of the coffee industry that scare Agusto as he sees them as a threat to the sustainability of the coffee industry including climate change, diseases, higher prices for fertilizers and coffee price variability.

However, he continues to work hard and hopes that he is also leaving a good example for the generations to come, along with many nice “Recuerdos” with his family
