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.
