The Perez family produces coffee right next to the border of Mexico, outside the village of Agua Dulce in Huehuetenango. The secluded and lush area requires a long stint of off-road driving in order to access the farm. However, it is much better than earlier days when they could only reach the farm and deliver coffee by mule before a dirt track was put in place in the 1980s.
Wilfrido Perez inherited the farm from his father, Jose, in the 1990s. In recent years, Wilfrido’s son, Hernan, became more involved with the farm by separating lots throughout the farm with an emphasis on finding the highest quality coffee. Although the farm produces nearly 2,000 bags of coffee a year with quality from good to excellent, our 40 bag selection highlights some of the sweeter and more vibrant flavor coming from the area. Agua Dulce translates to “sweet water,” and the phrase is often used to refer to “fresh water.” The translation couldn’t be more true for this sweet and fresh tasting coffee!
