Producer FRANCISCO PEREZ ALVARADO
Altitude 1600-1700 MASL
Earlier this year, our green buyer, Jamie, visited our leading partner in the Huehuetenango region, Primavera Coffees, in Guatemala City. Super tasty and a classic example of the Huehue profile we so adore, we're thrilled to welcome Yulchen, produced by Francisco Perez Alvarado, to the shop. A 3rd generation coffee farmer and local school teacher, Francisco took over some land from his father. Working as a teacher while farming, Francisco's been able to save money and purchase more land in the area to expand his coffee plantations. Passionate about coffee Francisco says: "Living in a coffee-producing family makes one passionate about this crop, in spite of the challenges it sometimes brings with it. It has become part of our culture, to such a degree that even though I have a career as a teacher, I still want to carry on tending my coffee farms as well."
