About The Coffee
Sotero Cano purchased this parcel of land about 15 years ago, and named it Los
Nisperos after the species of tree that grows on the land. The Nispero not only
provides shade to the coffee plants, but also grows a small fruit that attracts many types of birds to the land, an homage to the biodiversity and natural beauty of Huehuetenango.
Sotero Cano lives with his sons Jogli, Edin and Bayron, and the family works on
Nisperos as well as a few other small parcels of land dedicated to coffee farming.
Sotero has owned his land for decades, but he didn’t always farm coffee there. It
was around 30 years ago that the family heard that coffee was a profitable crop
and they started growing seedlings little by little.
Over the years, Sotero concludes that he has learned a lot, and he feels confident
about the future of coffee for those who are willing to continue learning and
innovating. This is the message that he would like to share with his neighbours and the younger generations.
