The 'Farms of Antigua' and 'Antigua Regional' lots are comprised of coffee from farms in the Antigua region in the south of Guatemala.

Los Volcanes Coffee (LVC) buys the entire harvest in cherry from these farms, using a uniform pricing strategy that results in the highest price in the region. The producers are paid within two weeks of their coffee being received at Beneficio La Esperanza for processing.

Josué Morales, LVC’s founder and director, coordinates with community leaders to orchestrate the pick-up of cherries with trucks arriving daily loaded with fresh cherry.

The producers contribute their labour, land and coffee, and use the infrastructure of LVC and Beneficio La Esperanza for collection and processing. LVC provides  composted pulp to the producers to improve soil quality, while all of these producers have been involved with LVC’s workshops at Finca La Esperanza, benefitting from classes on compost, shade, spacing and picking, among others.
