Celebrating our 10th Anniversary
Our story began in 2013 as a humble farm roaster amidst the captivating landscapes of Lake Atitlán. Over the years, our passion for exceptional quality led us to transform this modest endeavor into a professional coffee processing and roasting company.
With each step of our evolution, we upheld the values of authenticity and ethical standards. From sourcing Atitlan coffees directly from local farmers to meticulously processing them in our own factory, we ensured unwavering quality and fairness in every cup.
Introducing our Artisanal Products
Our Tahini is made from 100% locally grown Sesame seeds. Mechanically peeled, gently roasted and stone ground it is of the finest and highest quality you can find.
Our Peanut butter is made from 100% locally grown peanuts. Gently roasted and stone ground to the smoothest cream you can find. Let us inspire you to add a new flavor to your daily meals.
Our Macadamia butter is made from 100% locally grown Macadamia. Gently roasted and stone ground to the smoothest cream you can find.
Our honey is sourced from a local beekeepers cooperative. We take pride in the fact that our honey stays 100% pure and raw. We don’t heat the honey and only filter the fresh harvested honey by hand.
For our friends and neighbors we produce jam made from locally grown strawberries and blackberries. This low sugar jam was inspired by my mothers home made recipe. Currently available in San Marcos la Laguna only.
We source our coffee from Micro Lots around lake Atitlan. In San Marcos La Laguna we process from the fresh harvested cherry to green coffee in our own beneficio. Our coffee is always freshly roasted, all year around.
