Producer Noe Isabel Castillo lives in one of the most remote places in Central America, five hours through the mountains from the city of Huehuetenango in the west of Guatemala. This coffee was grown on her family’s 6.5 hectare farm, Buena Esperanza, meaning “good hope” in Spanish. Practically impassable roads splinter off into the mountains around the modest city (colloquially referred to simply as “Huehue”), leading to farms that hug the sides of mountains, with deep green foliage and trees laden with ripening cherries. This beautiful region is the most diverse in Guatemala, with nine distinct Mayan language groups alongside Spanish-speaking mestizos. Coffee is the main export here, and unfortunately yet unsurprisingly the population remains extremely poor.
