Our Trip To Guatemala to visit Finca Vista Hermosa Coffee Plantation
Here are some pictures from our trip to visit Edwin Sr. and Edwin Jr. at their plantation in Huehuetenago, Guatemala: in March of ’06.
Edwin Jr. is responsible for the growing of the coffee, the export to America (he has a place in Washington) and finally the distribution. He has also taken up consulting work for other farms. Without Edwin we would not have our wonderful Guatemalan Finca Vista Hermosa as well as other fine coffees from Guatemala.
Edwin is one of the most knowledgeable growers that we have met. He strives for excellence and is willing to donate his time to help others. He helps farms increase their profit by growing exceptional coffee. This money than goes to paying workers higher wages and providing basic necessities such as health care and education.
While we were visiting the farm in Guatemala we saw them nearing completion of a new clinic where they would bring in doctors to provide free healthcare to the workers. They also helped maintain and build a school where the government could only fund half of the project. In return, Edwin has some of the most dedicated workers in the region.
Here at Burman Coffee we do all we can to help Edwin and his projects. We hope to continue helping Edwin grow, and strive to find more people and coffees throughout the world that carry similar characteristics and drive as Edwin and his coffees.
