Finca De Dios is one of the premier Guatemalan coffee farms, a model of sustainability, providing education, infrastructure and medical care.
Almost forty years ago, a horse lover bought the farm with the intent of lodging his horses. A few years later, he was transferred because of work reasons. His daughter; Ellen Prentice, who remained in Guatemala, was left in charge of the farm. She started to tend the few hectares of coffee that the farm had and planted most of the farm with coffee, with the exception of the natural forests.
Six years ago, after inheriting her piece of the original farm, she proceeded to name it Finca de Dios, in memory of her father.
Since, they have been building the necessary infrastructure, including a wet mill. Even though small in comparison to most of the big coffee farms, we agree with the saying that some of the best things in life come in small packages.
Tasting Notes: A great clean micro lot from Finca De Dios: We roast this one MEDIUM, creating a nice balance between the sweet, malty and chocolaty notes: a very smooth quality Guatemala coffee.
