Finca El Socorro is one of the four farms owned by Juan Diego de la Cerda. Three of them are situated in Palencia and one in San Geronimo, Baja Verapaz. Diego is experimenting with different varieties such as Java, Red and Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Caturra, Maracaturra, Pacamara, Purpuracea and Geisha. Anyone who has ever tasted one of his coffees can confirm that some of Guatemala's best coffees are produced there.
60% of his land is covered with natural forest. Coffee cultivation only makes up 25% of his land. The rest is covered with cows and flower plantations. All coffee trees are natural shade trees that have been on the farm prior. Each Parcel has a sign with information about age, varieties, size, etc.
This light roast coffee is absolutely soothing with lots of floral notes & fruitiness of peach and apple. Juicy mouthfeel with delightful honey sweetness. Great coffee to slowly enjoy in the evening.

We like the taste and aroma.
The beans are big and beautiful.
Great for those who love smooth South American cuppa. I've always liked Guatemalan coffee so probably biased.
