Total Price:

Finca El Socorro is a coffee farm of unsurpassable beauty in the highlands of Guatemala in the state of Palencia which is  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 this coffee back again because we love it so much!  We know you will too.

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.  He has spurred the farms focus on quality coffee production since the late 1990s with advanced processing techniques including warm water fermentaion.
