NO SPEED // DECAF - Guatemala
We source this coffee through Onyx Importers, a company founded and operated by Edwin Martinez, a coffee farmer himself from Guatemala. In his mid-fifties, Florencio Villatoro is incredibly diligent and active despite having had many setbacks. He's one of the younger brothers of COE winning Aurelio Villatoto, owner of Finca Villaure, Pedro Villatoro of the always sparkly Guayables lots, Juan Villatoro oF El Milagro and the eldest brother, Julian of the Los Olivos lots. Florencio's diligence has paid off in regional, national, and international awards. In the 2022 harvest cycle, El Diamante won 10th place in the One Of A Kind Guatemala auction with a natural Bourbon, and 28th place in the Cup of Excellence with a washed Maragogype.
Florencio started young, with a coffee nursery and a small lot gifted by his father. He's been working earnestly since he was 13. At the age of 25, he was in a tragic car accident which damaged his leg, but he's continued working, innovating, and thriving with the support from his family.
Florencio's wife Lesvia Marilu Lopez has actively worked in the farm operations through the decades. Now, their four children, Riner, Maikel, Yelsin and Danita are adults living and working around the farm. On any given afternoon during the bustle of harvest, you might see Florencio turning parchment rows on the patios or laughing with his grandchildren while Riner weighs cherry turn-ins from pickers, and Maikel cups day lots with the cousins in the family lab.
