About

Young, Entrepreneurial, Innovative, Transparent

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.
