narrative: this coffee comes from a fairly well known and successful farm in the highlands of Guatemala call La Esperanza, which means, “The Hope.” Francisco Morales has been farming most of his life. He entered the coffee industry by working at a coffee plant nursery and gradually worked his way up, purchased land, and started his farm. He is well know not only by the coffee community, but also his local area of El Coyegual as a community leader and builder. When he’s not busy at the farm he is probably helping a neighbor construct a road or building and is also one of the few men in the area who drive semi trucks with building materials up the mountains to the small villages. When I visited in December, Francisco was recovering from a throat surgery, but still met us at the farm to enthusiastically show us around and explain his passion for coffee.
