Caffe Vita Organic Guatemala Finca Nueva Vinas
Located in a lush valley near the extinct volcano Tecuamburro, Finca Nuevo Vinas has been farmed by the Keller family for over 100 years. This long history has seen the farm undergo many changes, with one of the most important being the decision in 2003 to make a full transition to organic farming. Sustainability and environmental stewardship are key components of their philosophy, with 200 hectares of their land set is aside as a nature reserve.
Since 2007 Caffe Vita has been purchasing coffee from this remarkable farm, establishing a meaningful relationship and a direct connection between grower and roaster. We continue to be impressed with their sustainable farming practices and tireless experimentation in organic and biodynamic techniques which have steadily improved the health of the farm and in turn the quality in the cup.
On site processing ensures that the fruit is handled with care at each stage – from cherry selection to density separation, pulping, fermentation, and sun drying. The pristine facilities and attention to detail encourage a consistently clean and delicately nuanced coffee
