Cubulco, a municipality in the heart of Guatemala, stands out with its geography and cultural heritage. Surrounded by rolling mountains, Cubulco's landscape seamlessly melds lush vegetation, graceful waterfalls, and winding rivers, composing an impressive tableau of nature.
Mornings in Cubulco reveal valleys blanketed by ethereal mist. As the sun rises, it unveils the vistas beneath, setting a tranquil tone.
The core of Cubulco is its history with the indigenous Achí people, inhabitants of this region. The Achí's legacy is clear throughout Cubulco, from customs to arts and music.
Known for their handicrafts, the Achí produce textiles with vibrant hues and intricate designs, telling ancestral stories. Their traditional music and dance are integral to the community's culture, celebrated during festivities and fostering unity.
The coffee processing at this farm is a meticulous and efficient operation, optimised to produce high quality coffee. Selected cherries are de-pulped in a motorised pulper and further selected by hand to remove any defects. After pulping, the coffee is placed into fermentation tanks, each equipped with four jets and a motor to facilitate the process. The coffee is fermented for around 24 hours, depending on the ambient conditions. After fermentation the coffee is washed in the same fermentation tank until all the mucilage has been washed off.
Finally the washed coffee is sun dried on a patio covered with nylon sheets for around 4 days.
