Our Guatemala is a blend of coffees from seven dedicated producers on the western edge of the department of Jalapa, in eastern Guatemala. Six are from the municipality of Mataquescuintla (where, legend has it, a donkey made of gold — yet to be unearthed — is buried on the highest hill) and one is San Pedro Pinula.

Their coffees were grown between 1,500 and 1,750 meters ASL, washed, fermented between 18 and 24 hours, and dried on cement patios and in Guardiola dryers. After being processed by the producers below, they were milled at: the Guadalupe, El Pescadito, Agua Tibia, El Colorado, El Copante, El Cañon and El Chorro mills and then delivered in parchment to the RCMA dry mill.

RCMA has worked closely with these producers, sending agronomists to offer advice, providing guidance on environmental measures and helping them to meet the standards for various certifications.
