Narrative: We buy this coffee through one of our close import partners Onyx Coffee Importers. They are a farmer owned importing company that we have visited in Guatemala. They’re social projects and transparent model are industry leading. Brice visited several farmers in the same village as Ana Maria, but unfortunately did not meet her. However, given the close relationship we have with Onyx and they’re above bar trading methods, we feel confidently that Ana Maria is getting a great price and wonderful treatment from the Onyx team. This is one of the rare, single farm, single lot decafs available to roasters. We’re excited to bring this offering to caffeine free coffee drinkers!
About Ana Maria: Ana Maria's father, Angel Ortega, owned the farm since its inception in 1950, and Ana Maria was born at the Finca. Her father and mother died when she was 17 and she has managed the farm since then. Ana Maria is an excellent manager and displays these qualities in conversation and as a host, directing your next move in a supportive yet firm way. She loves nature and flowers. In the city of Huehuetenango, Ana Maria's house is a beautiful garden complete with peacocks. Behind the house is a massive drying patio and a bodega for her coffees, as she knows to keep an eye on her "Oro".
