DESCRIPTION

Las Peñas is an 11 hectare farm situated in town of Aldea el Pajal, San Antonio Huista in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala.

Pedro Aguilar Mendez started growing coffee over 30 years ago. Unlike other coffee producers at the time, Pedro stood out for his focus on quality over quantity, constantly refining his techniques to get the best out of his harvest.

Once the cherries have been picked, they’re immediately transported to the de-pulper, where the fleshy fruit of the coffee cherries are removed. The coffee then goes into a fermentation tank, where the beans are dry fermented (a process that conserves water). The coffee is then left to ferment for approximately 32 hours. It is then rinsed and moved into a bath of clean water, where it rests for another 12 hours. Once the coffee is completely clean, it’s left to dry in direct sunlight for 6 days.
