About Santa Isabel Buena Vista
Producer Jose Gabriel del Cid Batres cultivates coffee on his farm, Finca Santa Isabel Buena Vista in Antigua, Guatemala. Antigua has long been known for producing excellent coffees. The rich volcanic soil and low humidity, coupled with warm days and cool nights, create the ideal conditions for growing sweet, dense cherry.
Guatemala continues to produce high-quality, record-breaking coffees. In 2017, new and varied processing methods pushed prices at the Guatemalan Cup of Excellence contest to record highs. Antiguan growers can fetch astronomical prices due the fame of the region’s coffee.
