Background Details

This coffee is sourced from a family owned estate located within the municipality of Union Juarez in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Finca San Carlos has a rich heritage that dates back to 1896, when Ludwig Hotzen, a German immigrant, first established coffee cultivation on the western slope of Volcan Tacana, which sits on the international border between Mexico and Guatemala. Alfred Klein purchased the farm from the Hotzen family in 2013. Alfred has worked hard to renovate the farm after leaf rust destroyed nearly 85 percent of production. Finca San Carlos has a state of the art water purification system and bio-digester to ensure that the water is returned downstream, clean, PH balanced and oxygenated. Alfred has also maintained a long standing commitment to the Guatemalan migrant workers and their families; providing onsite housing, meals, healthcare and education to offset the hardship of seasonal work in such a remote location.
