Surrounded by lush old forests, Finca La Soledad is located in the Acatenango region of Guatemala and has been a Perez family coffee farm since 1895. Named in honor of Grandmother Soledad Perez, the farm is 91 hectares (45 dedicated to coffee, 46 to rainforest) of mountainous terrain and looks nothing like the farms we are used to in North America. Our relationship with the family dates back 14 years and represents our first direct coffee partnership.
Family patriarch Henio, with sons Raul and Jose, manages the farm, which adheres to strict environmental and socio-economic criteria in order to maintain its Rainforest Alliance Certification™. Located at an elevation of approximately 1470-1715 MASL, all of La Soledad’s coffee is grown under shade, which slows down the maturation process and keeps the soil moist and fertile.
The final cup is a celebration of the Perez family’s progressive, sustainable and ethical approach to coffee production. Rich and smooth, we roast this coffee just enough to highlight tasting notes of golden raisin and roasted almond with a sweet citric acidity.
