Product Description


    Jorge Mendez started as a picker in farms in the San Pedro Necta. He saved money with his wife until he had Q500 (about $69 US) to buy a small piece of land down by the Pan-American highway. About 14 km away, and closer to civilization, Jorge learned the value of coffee; how to buy and sell, quality metrics, and how to grow quality coffees. He sold his property and moved back up the mountain to be back in Agua Culc. Here he bought two small parcels and worked the land. Someone told him that having two farms apart was a waste of time so he bought the first lot where El Apiario currently is. AT first, coffee wouldn't grow at this elevation and he grew corn while trying many different kinds of coffees. Finally, he discovered how to grow coffees at this altitude and continued to work on quality.
