Finca El Socorro is a coffee farm of unsurpassable beauty in the highlands of Central Guatemala roughly 50 kilometers from Guatemala City. The Black Sheep team has won a golden bean with the El Socorro Pacamara and so we have brought Guatemala El Socorro coffee back again!
El Socorro itself is a working farm established in the early 1960s with cows, chickens and food crops all being maintained and grown on-site and alongside coffee bushes. It is located in a high-altitiude tropical highland forest with many native trees providing shade for the coffee bushes themselves.. El Socorro’s prized coffees are a result of its high altitude location combined with University trained agronomist (and owner) Diego De La Cerda’s great attention to detail.
