The farm is located in the area of Colomba, Quetzaltenango where coffee farming began in Guatemala. El Transito Bolivar sits right below the mountains that surround volcan Santiaguito which provides generous amounts of ash that serve as natural fertilizer. The mountains provide a stable humid microclimate. Our plantation ranges in altitude of 1200 to 1400 mts over sea level. We have currently renovated 70% of our coffee trees with Catuai, Caturra, Catimor and Sarchimor varieties. In the renovated areas, the farm has kept a variety of native and old trees for shade and has planted Inga trees to fix nitrogen in the soil, We strongly believe in protecting and promoting diversity of flora and fauna and the adequate use of natural resources. The farm is a member of Women in Coffee Association.
