About The Coffee
In 2013 Renardo Ovalle planted coffee in several plots that he called Los Pinos because in this region, due to its height above 2,000 masl, could be seen large old pines. It is located in Santa Barbara, a municipality near Huehuetenango where rainfall is scarcer compared to other regions of Huehuetenango. The varieties that were planted with coffee were Caturra, Bourbon and Pacamara. Something that began as an experiment resulted in a unique coffee due to its soil and height conditions.
The coffee is harvested between January and May and then processed anaerobically for 48 hours in cherry and 36 hours on tank.
