Huehuetenango, Guatemala, renowned for its coffee, holds a lesser-known arid region where Diana and Hector Ovalle defy odds by cultivating coffee. Their coffee heritage dates back to the late 1800s when their ancestors settled in Aqua Dulce, Huehuetenango. Initially, they attempted sugarcane farming without much success but later transitioned to coffee, igniting a lasting family passion.
Diana and Hector are deeply committed to their community, supporting those reliant on coffee production by purchasing 150 sheep, which not only keep their farms weed-free but also provide meat for workers. They also cultivate trees bearing nutritious seeds and fruits for their local community.
Their coffee production approach focuses on maximum efficiency and sustainability, and we are delighted to collaborate closely with the Ovalles to develop a model that not only rewards quality but also aligns with current coffee market trends.
El Oregano coffee farm gets its name from its historical cultivation of oregano plants. Despite its arid climate, it offers remarkable views. The farm employs an innovative irrigation system that utilizes river water, ensuring each row of coffee trees receives life-sustaining hydration. Additionally, El Oregano features a well-maintained nursery with a diverse range of coffee cultivars. Their specialty lies in honeys and naturals, celebrated for their deep, fruity flavors. We eagerly anticipate presenting this year’s harvest. Enjoy!
