Very close to San Antonio Huista, in the Guatemalan region of Huehuetenango, Luis Hernandez, grows his coffee since his parents passed on him their Finca Los Laureles. At that time, he quits his job in construction to accomplish his dream of being a farmer like his parents before him, and he started growing coffee back in 1995. Nowadays, the coffee trees are the main plantation on his farm, and they grow under the great shadow of the Laurel trees. Luis shares his passion for coffee with his sons, and he wishes to pass on them the family legacy.
As a small producer, Luis is very proud of his high-quality coffee, and he supervises very carefully all the post-harvest processes as well, taking care personally of the fermentation and drying on patios.
