Skirting the Tolimán Volcano near Lake Atitlán in south central Guatemala, you’ll find a farm run by fifth generation coffee producer, Andrew Fahsen.
Patzibir comes from the native Kaqchikel word meaning "Place of Tzibir (tree)" and speaks to the farm’s connection to nature. Not only do the Tzibir trees dot the farm and provide much needed shade for the growing coffee plants, they symbolize the balance between the lowlands and highlands of this rich microclimate, where clouds and forest meet.
Andrew meticulously plants and harvests the coffee from his farm and also has worked with Los Volcanes Coffee to implement a well thought out compost application strategy to further nurture the land and help coffee plants thrive. (They even reuse the pulp from the cherry as part of the compost!)
Patzibir demonstrates a beautifully holistic approach to growing and producing coffee and we’re honored to be the final step in bringing this special coffee to you. We visited Guatemala earlier this year and hand selected this lot and we’re so stoked it’s finally here to share.
