Finca Los Nisperos is located near the town of San Antonio Huista in Guatemala's renowned coffee growing region Huehuetenango. From the Nahautl Aztec language Huehuetenango translates to 'land of the ancients'. Bordered on the north and west by Mexico, the department spreads over almost the entire length of the Sierra de Cuchumatanes mountain range. There is a wide difference in altitude across the department, from heights of 3,352 masl to as low as 300 masl, encompassing an equally wide variation in local climate, ranging from mountain peaks where the temperature sometimes falls below freezing to tropical lowland rainforest.

Los Nisperos farm lies at the high altitude of up to 1600 masl and spreads over 8 hectares of land with total average yearly production of 4 800 kg of coffee. Benefiting from a particular microclimate with dry hot winds blowing from the Tehuantepec plain in Mexico, the land is protected from frost even at high altitudes which are perfect for production of great quality coffees. The owner - Sotero Cano has planted this land under 100% Caturra varietal know for its exceptional cup quality. This lot has been processed by the traditional washed method with the addition of soaking in fresh water for 24 h after pulping. Healthy trees, high altitude and moderate climate with average temperatures of 18-24C together with careful processing contribute to this lot's exceptionally sweet and clean favour profile.
