After the Guatemalan independence - 1821: The Jesuits sold the hacienda to Doroteo Samayoa and the area became to be known as Belen. At the time Belen produced Nopal (cactus) and after a process it would become black ink, used in tinting cloth and it was exported mainly to Europe. Late 19th and early 20th century: When artificial black was developed the Hacienda was no longer profitable. We started switching to other products like panela, cattle, and the introduction of coffee. End of 1950's: The owner of the hacienda Margarita Samayoa (daughter of Doroteo), converted the hacienda into one of the largest coffee plantations in Guatemala. At the end of the 1950s Margarita decided to inherit her nephews and nieces. Many years latter in 1995, Christian bought a piece of land that was then founded as Finca La Revuelta!
