Here the careful process of preparing the perfect coffee continues: depulping and a very precise 100% natural fermentation are the first steps. Coffee is then fully washed using fresh spring water and completely sun dried under the radiant Guatemalan sun.

In Antigua perfectly ripe beans are carefully handpicked and delivered to Pastores mill. Here the careful process of preparing the perfect coffee continues: depulping and a very precise 100% natural fermentation are the first steps. Coffee is then fully washed using fresh spring water and completely sun dried under the radiant Guatemalan sun. Antigua Pastores coffees are always freshly milled - only about 2 weeks prior to shipment. The beans are hand-sorted by more than 100 women with vast experience in this “art”, before being bagged for export.

Guatemalan producers are constantly looking for better growing conditions: richer soil; advantageous micro-climates; and ideal shade conditions. Farmers are investing in moving to higher grounds to increase their options for growing specialty coffees. Producers are dedicating lands at higher altitudes to planting traditional varietals that produce differentiated cup qualities.
