Guatemala La Colmenita

All Orders will ship within 48-72 hours of being ROASTED( Roast days are TUESDAY and FRIDAY)

Driving the narrow mountain road up an impossibly steep slope to Finca La Colmenita, or "The Beehive", the views are striking. The valley stretches out below, there's a reason this area is called Buena Vista!

When Francisco Cardona Martin bought La Colmenita in 2002, he had a vision: To produce the best quality coffees possible, by planting varieties known for excellence in separation, and investing heavily in equipment and farming techniques. Francisco is incredibly resourceful, drying his coffee on a patio he built on top of his house and investing nearly all profits from coffee sold back into the farm. 

We are very excited to be offering this coffee proudly sourced from our friends at Onyx. They're constantly building more and more relationships with the smaller producer and very hands on  at origin to better everything in terms of not just coffee but lifestyle, economics, family and education.
