Tierra Sagrada

Group of small and medium scale producers from Chiquimula

Tierra Sagrada honors the mountain range and biomes that make up eastern Guatemala. This is a blessed and mystical land that allows the production of outstanding coffee, tropical fruits and farmed trees. This region is recognized for its key economic importance in the country.

Producers who are part of Tierra Sagrada, meaning Holy Land, are small and medium sized coffee growers in the departments of Chiquimula. They are among a select group that continue to cultivate traditional varieties such as Catuai and Caturra and, to a lesser extent, exotic varieties such as Pacamara. These producers form part of a new coffee culture focused on better harvesting, better drying practices and more controlled fermentation times. This has resulted in more balanced and sweeter coffees. They are a role model for new generations, adapting to the latest trends while maintaining their essence – producing excellent coffees!

This coffee has notes of cocoa, vanilla, orange zest and chocolate.
