Description

 Josue Morales, Producer
Organic Bourbon grown at 1550 masl.

We have been working with Josue Morales and Los Volcanes Coffee for years now bringing in some popular selections from Guatemala like San Pedro Necta and San Martin. This is our first year bringing in El Pintado Organic from this beautiful 9 hectare forest estate.

Overview:
This farm is one of the most historic in the region of Antigua Guatemala, for many years being the only certified coffee farm in the region. The structure of this farm is designed to be a forest environment where many different types of shade trees that are native to Guatemala serve as the canopy that nourishes nine hectares of a bourbon variety that is over one hundred years old. The farm went through a drastic stumping and renovation program that rendered its first full harvest in 2021.

Environmental Projects:
El Pintado is a certified Organic farm where all of the inputs for the farm are created from organic material that occur naturally at the farm and are converted into a biologically rich compost designed to supply the microorganisms and nutrition to keep the farm balanced and healthy. They make three main products from the compost: compost tea, an aerated version that is used as a foliar spray, and solid form. 

El Pintado also houses a huge (50 million worms) vermiculture composting facility where the majority of the pulp from Beneficio la Esperanza is composted to produce an extremely rich organic soil that can be utilized in the farm's supply chain or sold to other farmers. Water use at Beneficio la Esperanza (where El Pintado is processed) has been reduced by 70% with the installation of an efficient siphon for sorting coffee cherries. The water used in processing is also recycled through the mill multiple times.
