Meet Samuel Diaz Garcia

Guatemalan coffee traditionally exhibits high malic acidity, caramel, and clean cups with a ton of sweetness. We see distinctly different cups in each region of Guatemala. Huehuetenangos are typically known for their fruit forward profile that is borderline "naturally" pulpy, and a result of how large volumes of coffee are stacked on the patios.

Samuel Diaz, has worked in coffee following the family business. Four years ago he decided to send samples of his coffee to roasters and independent organizations to prove his quality, that same year he competed of the cup of excellence and got named in the top ten coffee of the Huehuetenango region.

Huehuetenango, Guatemala

In many places in the world, coffee grows in volcanic soil. Here in the Huehuetenango region in the western highlands of Guatemala, that is not the case. Located near Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, currents of hot air sweep up from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, intercepting the colder air flowing down the mountain and protecting the region from frost. This phenomenon, along with natural shade from the highland jungles, provides the perfect growing environment, allowing coffee cultivation as high as 2,000 meters.

The Guatemalan coffee grading system “defines the Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) grade to include coffee beans grown at elevations higher than 4,500 feet [1350 meters] above sea level, while the Hard Bean (HB) grade includes coffee beans grown between 4,000 feet and 5,000 feet [1300-1500 meters] above sea level.”

The higher the elevation, the slower the growth and ripening, thus the denser the bean, rendering it of higher quality.

Theodore's Coffee

Darwin Pavon founded Theodore's Coffee in 2014, after years working in Honduras collecting soil samples from farmers' fields in a push to create fertilizers for stronger growth and yield. Each Honduran coffee imported for Theodore's is sourced from a friend of Darwin's in the ultimate Direct Trade relationship. Pavon says,

"At Theodore's our passion is to bring to you superior quality coffee, serve you with excellence and create loyalty from you to our products and services in the coffee industry."

Every coffee you buy from Theodore's helps support The Micah Project, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where young men and boys who have grown up on the streets or in extreme poverty are trained in leadership and healthy life skills. Pavon has a strong passion to support The Micah Project, as he was an original Micah's resident who 'made good'.
