Description
Coffee Profile

We are pleased to offer San Lorenzo for a third consecutive year, this year purchasing twice as much coffee as last harvest. This is a wonderful cup, that we intentionally purchase as a late season offering, because it holds up so well late in the year. This is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail in growing, drying, and processing by the Valdés family.

Located near the town of San Cristóbal Verapaz, in the cool, rainy reaches of Cobán, Guatemala, Finca San Lorenzo nestles in the verdant hills at around 1,500 meters above sea level. San Lorenzo is the Valdés family’s second farm, purchased in 1987 as a sort of ‘little brother’ to another of our favorite Guatemala farms, Santa Isabel. When Lorenzo was first bought, there was only one small plot of land under coffee. Today, the family have developed 20 different lots under coffee, covering 110 hectares of the farm. The remaining 35 hectares are under forest cover.

The Valdés family have generations of coffee farming experience under their wings. Don Luis and his son - also named Luis (nicknamed ‘Wicho’) - manage the farms as general and agricultural manager, respectively. Luis’s other son, Rodrigo, helps manage Agricola Valmar, the family export business. Now the brothers’ children (Luis’s grandchildren), spend their school holidays at the farm, much as their fathers did when they were young. It is a true family business, run with love and devotion….. and a lot of expertise!
