Dare to Dream Big

When purchasing La Colmenita in 2002, Francisco Cardona Martin knew he wanted to change the landscape of coffee in Guatemala.

Coffee production in Guatemala is often viewed as a “side hustle” or way to earn extra money. The use of coyotes or middlemen, who sell combined coffee lots to corporate giants, leaves coffee producers with little to no opportunities for growth. Few dare to venture into coffee farming as a sole crop or way of life.

Francisco, however, believed in his coffee and spent nearly two decades working to produce exceptional-tasting coffee. By partnering with like-minded importers who value sustainable farmer relationships, his coffee is reaching new heights.

We’re proud to work with importing partners who provide farmers like Francisco access to the international market and agricultural support, positioning them to pursue a fruitful career in specialty coffee production. And, the proof of their efforts is evident in every sip!

Guatemala

Traditionally, Guatemalan farmers have produced coffee as a means of extra income. 

Even with the global rise of specialty coffee consumption, Guatemalan coffee farmers continue to sell their coffee to coyotes at or below market value. The coyotes then combine thousands of farmers’ coffee cherries together for processing—making it impossible to determine who produced what and lowering the total quality of the output. These coffee beans are then sold to major coffee corporations, with little of the profit making it to the producers.

Such a system does not provide a sustainable way of life for farmers. However, our importing partners set out to change this by providing meaningful opportunities for coffee farmers around Guatemala through community and infrastructure investments.

As a result, Guatemalan coffee producers gain the support they need to focus on quality coffee production. And, their coffees are evolving like never before. Still rich with classic nutty and milk chocolate notes, coffees such as La Colmenita are full of exciting flavors like citrus, red berries, toffee, and dried fruits. 

Go ahead. Take a sip and see for yourself.
