The story behind the coffee…
Located in Guatemala’s “boca costa” or the mouth of the pacific coast, Santa Anita is home to 35 families, five different languages (Spanish and 4 Mayan), and one very unique coffee cooperative. In 1998, after 36 years of civil war, a group of former revolutionaries who had spent the better part of their lives in the mountains fighting for a brighter future decided to trade in their guns for tools of the coffee trade and rebuild their lives on an abandoned finca or farm. They’re still fighting for a better world, now they just use the sale of high-quality coffee and bananas to build infrastructure, fund schools, and feed their families.
