More about Rosendo and Buena Vista:
Rosendo Domingo is a second-generation coffee producer in Petatan, Huehuetenango. Before the harvest he made sure that his pickers and other employees were motivated to work well. They picked only the ripest cherries and depulped them the same day of the picking. The coffee was then fermented in water between 36 to 40 hours and washed with clean water. The first hours of the drying process the coffee was left in thick layers to lower the humidity and then rested in 5mm thick layers in sun for five days to reach 12% humidity for exporting. Lastly the coffee parchment was sorted by hand to eliminate the defects and impurities.
“My parents started with coffee production about 30 years ago. Before this our family had a very low income but after we started to receive harvests, coffee was able to give us a better life”, Rosendo explains.
