Fallas Family - Guatemala San Sebastian NOVEMBER 2013
This families farm is located in a region well known for some of the most interesting and renowned in Guatemala, Antigua.
Owned by the Fallas family, this is one of the most organised and professional farms in the area. From agronomy right through to the picking processing, every stage is closely monitored like no other farm I have seen before.
These farm is between 1,500 and 1,950 meters above see level on the soil and the edges of the Acatenango volcano, and it is a huge farm. But San Sebastian knows that every coffee grown there is not specialty and they are very careful to provide access to quality and cup profiles for each lot, so only the very best lots are marked with their name.
The farm was founded over 100 years ago and now is on the hands of the 4th generation of the Fallas, Estuardo Fallas Castillo who is the great grandson. He has been taking up new trends in maintaining the quality and expanding it.
