Finca Alta Vista is located in one of the most remote areas in Huehuetenango. The Lopez family have been growing coffee in this area for approximately 38 years. Back when they started cultivating coffee, there were no roads around this region and they had to transport the coffee on horses and mules for 3 days to get it to the nearest town and sell it. With the passage of time, it became a passion for the new generation. In the 1990’s Huehuetenango started to become a region of interest to specialty coffee buyers for the high acidity and complex cup profile. In 1999, Finca Alta Vista won a price for their quality. It was this event that motivated them to strive for better agricultural practices and wet milling techniques.
To this day, they continue to be pioneers in the region, known for taking extra care both in the fields and post harvest processing. They have also been experimenting with semi-washed, honey and natural processes.
