For years José's family has been dedicated to producing coffee, since children teach them the whole process so that when they become adults they follow the traditions and example of their parents.
Coffee plantations and José's family has been seriously affected by different problems that have existed in Guatemala, Hurricane Stan, armed conflict, internal violence, until the "Roya", despite all this have managed to move forward, and that coffee has been the sustenance of his family for generations and they want it to continue that way for many more generations.
"Atitlán” from Nahuatl means "between waters” is a municipality in the department of Sololá in the Republic of Guatemala. In this region the coffee grows on the slopes of the volcanoes that surround Lake Atitlán.
Its economy is characterized by agriculture (coffee) and the production and sale of handicrafts.
Across the lake from Panajachel, on an inlet between the volcanoes of Tolimán and San Pedro, lies Atitlán, with a strong indigenous identity. Women wear purple-striped skirts and huipiles embroidered with colored birds and flowers, while older men still wear lavender or maroon striped embroidered pants.
The soils where this coffee is born are formed by materials from the volcanoes Atitlán, San Pedro, and Tolimán, which favors their growth and the perfect development of their qualities. The high altitude translates into a low incidence of pests and diseases.
