Juan Diego de la Cerda's Finca El Socorro has proven to be one of the best coffee farms in Guatemala year after year. In 2007, it won 1st place in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence for the first time and took 4th place in the same competition in 2008. In 2011, El Socorro's Maracaturra lot won the Guatemala Cup of Excellence Competition. Then, in 2012, Juan Diego finished in the top five in the Coffee of the Year competition. Such consistent results made us jump at the chance to become Direct Trade partners with Juan Diego, and we're proud to continue offering El Socorro's excellent coffees year after year. This is just the second harvest of a lot that was planted a few years ago in El Socorro's Las Marias plantation, near the farmhouse, above and to the west of a large plot of beautiful blue hydrangeas. The windy, east-facing slope is shaded in the afternoon.
