This coffee comes from the Twi’Ha farm in Huehuetenango, formerly known as El Chalum. Twi’Ha is owned by Armando Gomez. Armando, his wife, and their two sons care for the 2 hectare farm. The farm was originally owned by Armando’s grandfather and Armando has worked the farm for many years. He purchased the farm from his Aunt and Uncle 8 years ago. On the farm Armando grows a handful of 100% arabica varietals, mainly Typica, Bourbon and Caturra.

A few years ago, Armando started selling his very best coffees directly to roasters, with the remainder going to the local farming cooperative. This has given Armando the ability to sell his coffees based on cost of production and quality instead of having the price dictated by the commodity market. This increase in profits for Armando has inspired him to take on even more quality initiatives and also to expand his farm higher up the mountain. Recently, he has even started planting Geisha and Kenyan varietals SL-28 and 34, and hopes to win the Cup of Excellence in the near future!
