Finca Las Lomas
GERMAN AND JOSE GUIRRE
German and Jose have about 60 acres of shade grown coffee at high elevation. Their area suffered a lot this year with the low prices of coffee. They had a lot of issues finding workers, many of whom emigrated to US. This is another reason why direct trade partnerships are so important for small producers like the German and Jose.
Relationship with De La Finca:
Nelson met German and Jose on a trip to Guatemala a few years ago, cupped their coffee, and has been waiting for the opportunity to bring it in. This year that has become a reality!
