Guatemala Cobán Santa Isabel
Finca Santa Isabel, located in a lush corner of Guatemala’s San Cristobal Verapaz municipality, has been owned and operated by the Valdes family since 1875. Today, the 187-hectare farm stands out as a paragon of environmental sustainability, with a full 100 hectares dedicated to reforestation and a plenitude of animal species making their homes there. Guatemalan coffees like the Santa Isabel tend to overflow with an impossibly diverse collage of flavors. We’d liken a well-brewed cup to sprinting through a freshly-mowed lawn on a beautiful summer’s day, a ripe peach in one hand, a hot chocolate (improbably) clutched in the other, a pocket of your grass-stained jeans lined with honey sticks.
