Dried Fig + Molasses

COUNTRY: Guatemala
REGION: Huehuetenango
CULTIVAR: San Ramon and Caturra
PROCESSING: Washed

This is our fourth year sourcing coffee from the Cuevitas farm, one of six farms managed by Renardo “Nayo” Ovalle Vides and his wife Jaqueline, and part of the formidable Vidas 58 company. The quality of the six farms has kept us coming back year after year. 

All six farms are Rainforest Alliance certified and follow Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices. Additionally, in 2012 Coffee Care, a non-profit organization leading social awareness projects in coffee-growing regions in Guatemala funded the construction of a school and nursery at the farm with fully trained, full-time teachers. All of the temporary and permanent staff working the farms have access to schooling for their children, with food donations used to incentivise school or nursery attendance—when a child attends school or nursery for five consecutive days they receive a weekly supply of rice, beans, and corn. 

Before these incentives, it was difficult to get workers to leave their children in the care of others, with greater pressure to earn money leading to children working instead of attending school. These incentives though have ensured the school and nursery classes are always full, with no children working on the farms. Accommodation is provided for permanent and temporary workers, with separate facilities for men, women and families.

This coffee is bursting with dried fig and molasses, a prime example of the quality inherent in the coffee produced by Vides 58.
