Las Palomas is formed by a group of nine very small farmers. The present lot is made up of just three of them. The farms are perched on the steep slopes of the Cuchumatanes mountains, a land of unique micro-terroirs.

Las Palomas is one of the many peaks in San Pedro Necta, Huehuetenango; the 2016 crop for GHCC grouped 3 small producers of the 9 total that work their coffees in a very clean and neat way. Las Palomas starts at 5900 and ends at 6400 feet above sea level. The area gathers around 9 small producers and most of them are related.

Varieties in the area are Bourbon, Catuaí and Caturra. They have a late harvest due to the altitude, so the harvest season goes from the beginning of March to the end of April. They have two rounds of picking. The coffee is handpicked and sorted by the members of the family and they also do the wet mill. The coffee is dried in their own patios.

We are able to get these coffees with the help of Byron Benavente, who helps us outsource coffee from that area. He has been in contact with Marcos Domingo, who leaders the people there. Byron has also gotten help for them to improve in their agricultural management and their process in the wet mill.
