Guatemala January 2017

We began our trip in Antigua the beautiful spanish colonial town. Traveling are: Donna Goodlaxson, Bob Brose, Sue Gerlach, Allen Freiermuth, Matt Buetow, Brenda Betz- Stoltz and me - Jody. It's great to have 3 board members Donna, Brenda and me and also Sue our coffee business manager. I'm especially thrilled to have my son Matt along.

We traveled across the beautiful Lake Atitlan on a boat- lancha arriving at the Posada de Santiago where we'll make our home base for 4 nights.

New Co-op Coffee Blend

In January 2015, members of our Guatemalan and Honduran coffee cooperatives met for the first time ever. Francisco, Hector and Roman traveled up to Guatemala from Honduras and joined a small group of us coming from the U.S.. Together we traveled to visit the UPC coffee cooperative and farms, the Weavers group of Santiago Atitlan, and more. While visiting the coffee farms there was much discussion of the joys of coffee farming, and the techniques and challenges of growing coffee organically.

Hector's report of his trip with Don Chico and Roman to Guatemala, January 2015

This January we invited three Honduran coffee farmers to travel with us in Guatemala. This was a true Farmer to Farmer trip.

Hector wrote a report of his travels. Below is his report in Spanish followed by English (translated by Andy Gaertner).
