Guatemala El Durazno - Latin American Single Origin
San Antonio Huista
Octavio López Camposeco
We've partnered with Onyx Coffee in Bellinham, WA and Octavio Lopez in Huista Guatemala to bring you this amazing coffee! Let us tell you a bit about Octavio's farm:
The property of El Durazno is decorated with namesake peach trees. More than thirty-five years ago, Octavio López Camposeco began growing coffee alongside peaches. He started small with coffee, in a 25 x 25 meter lot. Year over year the peaches were stolen, so finally, he switched to coffee. He and his family grow Catuaí, Maragogype, Caturra, and Pache varieties, and this will be the third year they've separated varieties.
Octavio is 57 years old now and has 6 children: 4 daughters and 2 sons. His wife's name is Mercedes, and they've been married for 35 years. He has 11 grandchildren. Two of his daughters have farms in the area with their families as well.
This is the fifth year El Durazno has exported, and we're excited to work with the López family. We're looking forward to supporting further micro-lots and varietal separations, and to bringing this wonderful coffee from 'The Peach' to your porch!
