Guatemala Origin Trip
Together with our friend and partner, Manolo Muralles, The Coffee Quest is diving deep into Guatemala. Dive with us and explore the great diversity this country has to offer. In March we are organizing an origin trip to do just that. We will travel in a small group, and will visit the regions we source coffee from. We will start in Palencia, Fraijanes, with is our homebase and the home of Manolo’s farm, Las Delicias. From there on we will visits farms and mills in; Antigua and Atitlan, and hopefully also Huehuetenango (still in planning).
We will experience the great natural and cultural diversity, for example by visiting lake Atitlan and Antigua city, and we’ll visit a volcano! Back in Gautemala city, we will stop at our cupping laboratory to sample this years harvest from all our favourite farmer, among others; Las Delicias, Lo Da Silva, El Pilar and El Zapote. Join us on this trip to experience Guatemalan Coffee to it’s fullest and look for your Guatemalan lot of 2018!
