Guatemalan Coffee History

The Guatemalan coffee industry developed around the 1850s. Small plantations in Amatitlán and Antigua were the first and grew quickly, but lack of widespread knowledge, technology, and labor caused slow growth. Over a decade, growth increased and between 1879 and 1893 exports reached almost 300 million pounds.

AA Highlands

Las Moritas is located in San Antonio La Paz in the department of El Progreso in Guatemala. The farm is located on one of the highest non- volcanic mountain chains in Guatemala, and is owned by Don Higinio Gomez and his wife Dona Aura. The farm produces several varietals of coffee, including Borbon, Pache San Ramon, Castillo, Pacamara, and Red Borbon. The humid, forested micro climate of the farmed coupled with the high altitude gives character to the coffee produced there.
