Description

High up in the mountains of the Anitgua region of Guatemala is a small, 400 year old farm called El Pintado. The owner, Mercedes Arzú Wilson, takes great pride in the sustainability of this farm and in the ethical practices in which shefinca_maria_el_pintado_gallery_019 treats her workers. Employees are payed per day instead of per pound of coffee picked which creates an incentive to harvest only the perfectly ripe cherries. The 50 million strong worm farm allows for the ideal organic fertilizer to keep the coffee plant strong & healthy in order to protect itself from pests and other threats. El Pintado houses its own ecological mill specifically designed to recycle water, eventually making its way back into the ground. It is the combination of these practices that creates a high quality, specialty bean. Speakeasy Coffee Company is honored to make this coffee easily available to you.

 

The term, Farm Direct, means we sourced this coffee without any brokers or middlemen and acted as the importer to get this coffee into the United States. Our roaster, Nelson, is in continued communication with Mercedes and looks forward to building a strong relationship with this farm.
