Julio represents the 4th generation working Finca El
Zapote. The farm is over 100 years old. It first started
growing sugar cane for its “panela” production. Panela
is unrefined whole cane sugar. Julio’s grandfather
started growing coffee 150 years ago, with 80 acres of
coffee. Today Julio’s son and nephew create the
various lots based on daily pickings. Julio’s son is a
barista and teaches brewing and barista schools. He
loves all things brewing.
When asked about the future of coffee, and what he
would like for Finca El Zapote, he said his goal for the
farm is to secure long term relationships. He would like
to share more of the profits with his workers, and
hopes to do so by securing relationships for all of his
coffee.

 

El Zapote is another stunning Guatemalan in a line of fantastic coffees that we at Hot Number's have had the pleasure of presenting to you!
