Finca La Esmeralda is located in the Sierra Minas region of San Agustín Acasaguastlán, in the El Progreso department of Guatemala.
The finca’s coffee story started in 1962, when Romelio Ramirez Cruz bought finca Los Balsamos, as the lands were called then. Management of the farm was passed on to the second generation of the farm, and Los Balsamos was divided in three. One of these three estates came to be Finca La Esmeralda. The estate, located at a height of 1450 masl, is planted with Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai trees over an area of 56 hectares.
This is the first time we offer coffees from the El Progreso. It is not so well known as Antigua or Huehuetenango, but with this nice coffee and also this years Cup Of Excellence winner Hacienda Kalibus la Sierra, this Guatemala region looks like very upcoming.
