About the Producer
The Hidalgo family have been growing coffee on this land in the municipality of La Libertad, Huehuetenango since the 1950s. Originally focusing on Caturra and Bourbon varieties, they now have expanded, growing both Sarchimor and Catuai.
Upon inheriting part of the family farm from his father in the 1970s, Don Silvano Hidalgo names his plot “Las Camelias”, after the flowers he loves growing in his garden.
This lot has undergone a classic washed process. After handpicking to ensure only completely ripe cherries are processed, cherries are depulped and fermented for 24 hours, before being dried on a patio until they reach the required humidity and moisture level.
