The Guat Lab is Mario Alarcon and Christian Starry, two producers and exporters who work side by side with growers in all parts of Guatemala to help them market their coffees. Unlike most exporters, they work as service providers providing 100% price transparency to their partners. The company developed a model with a fixed fee for exporting services and fair prices discussed with (not imposed to) each farmer and direct contact to the final buyer. Chris and Mario managed to make room for a different kind of exporting in Guatemala. More people trade transparently in the country now, a trend they are proud to have pioneered. They work with a number of producers with similar views of coffee: focus on innovation, transparency and a savvy approach to business. Mario is also the owner of Finca El Recuerdo and Finca Monte de Oro in Acatenango whilst Chris owns Finca El Xalúm and La Revuelta in Amatitlán. They are also known as Truth Trading Company or TTCo Exports.Translate

Seller (Pending)Farm: Finca San José Buena Vista Producer: Adolfo Hernández, José Adolfo Hernández and Karen Hernández Farm manager: José Adolfo Hernández Farm size: 4.5 hectares Location: Ciudad Vieja, Sacatepéquez department, Guatemala. Antigua growing region, near the Water and Fire volcanoes Altitude: 1450 - 1560 m Average yearly rainfall: 1,060 mm Average temperatures: 19.5 C Soil: Volcanic Cultivated varieties: Caturra, Catuaí, Bourbon Processes: Natural, Honey and Washed Cup Profile: Floral, Chocolate, Orange, Bright Acidity San José Buena Vista is in my family for 25 years and it is our first coffee farm. The farm is managed by my brother José and I (Karen) help my father Adolfo run Café Kapeu, a company he started to give farmers more support in processing and sales with better prices. Many producers leave their coffees with us in consignation. When we find good prices for them we sell and they get a better share. I am a Q Grader and the head of quality control at Café Kapeu. I cup coffees from over 700 producers all over Ciudad Vieja, where our office is, and Antigua. It is my job to tell them if there are any practices that can be improved based on the quality of their cup.
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:
1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.
3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
