Guatemala Finca Nuevo Vinas
December - February
Caturra, Catual, Pacamara
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 kep components of their philosophy, with 200 hectares of their land is set 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 bio-dynamic techniques which have steadily improved the health of the farm and in turn the quality in the cup.
