About the Producer
The Hidalgo family have been growing coffee on this land in the municipality of La Libertad in Huehuetenango since the 1950s.
Originally focusing on Caturra and Bourbon varieties, they now also grow 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.
Paraiso is a small sub-plot on Finca Las Camelias and is named after the village near where Finca Las Camelias is located (El Paraiso). This lot undergoes a classic washed process; cherries are picked by hand to ensure only completely ripe cherries are collected before being depulped and fermented for 24 hours. They are then dried on a patio until they reach the required humidity and moisture level.
