Grower (Pending)Farm: Finca Santa Ana Producer: Fernando Díaz Ortega Farm size: 24.5 hectares Location: Pueblo Nuevo Viñas town, Santa Rosa department, Guatemala. Between the Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes and near La Gavia mountain Altitude: 1600 - 1820 m Average yearly rainfall: 2200 mm (relative humidity of 60%) Average temperatures: 18C Soil: Volcanic Cultivated varieties: Catuaí, Bourbon, Gesha, Pacamara, SL-28, Dila, Marsellesa and more Processes: Washed, Natural, Honey, Anaerobic Awards: 10th place on 2007's Cup of Excellence, 15th place on 2009's Cup of Excellence, 4th place on 2010's Cup of Excellence, 9th place on 2012's Cup of Excellence and 16th place on 2015's Cup of Excellence My siblings and I inherited 4 farms from our father: Santa Ana, Idolia, Amatillo and Cielito. I have been running them all, alongside with our wet mill at Santa Ana, for my brothers and sisters. Santa Ana is the main farm, bought from a traditional coffee-growing family and managed by my family for over 30 years. I have a busy job in Guatemala city, so when I go to the farm I want to enjoy myself. Coffee for me is a passion and a hobby. This doesn't mean I don't take it seriously, of course. I am always looking to innovate in processing techniques and to investigate new varieties. I have started a variety garden with seedlings of Gesha, Ethiopia heirloom, SL-28 from Kenya, Marsellesa and more. There are 55 varieties in total. Despite being a blend of 2 varieties, the picking is very selective for this lot and the cherries are dried on patios and raised beds.
I run a group of four farms for my family in the village of Pueblo Nuevo Viñas, Santa Rosa department, between the Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes. They are Santa Ana, Idolia, Cielito and Amatillo. We grow Bourbon, Catuaí, Caturra and Pache side by side with native trees like Gravilea, Cuje, Pine, Cypress, Mundani, Oak and Chalum. We also have a garden with 55 different varieties. Our plantations are based on the top of hills and benefit from a mild climate. We also receive a hot stream from the Pacific Ocean, which creates perfect conditions for coffee. We are proud to have improved the quality of our beans year after year and to have been internationally recognized for it. We participate in Cup of Excellence regularly and have been among the finalist several times. This has helped us establish commercial relations with Asia, Australia, Europe and the USA. We are pleased to share our success and our coffees - that have been considered one of Guatemala ’s best - with you.
