The Echeverría brothers own and manage Santa Catalina. They have 95 hectares, 70 of which are planted with coffee and the remaining 25 are a forest reserve close to the Acatenango volcano. The altitude on the farm ranges from 1550m to 2100m. The higher slopes are planted with Bourbon and the comparatively lower areas with the other cultivars: Caturra, Catuaí and Pache. During the harvest the cultivars and plots are kept separate all the way through the picking, processing and drying. The harvests are then tasted and either kept as individual lots or blended. In the last couple of years Pedro and Manuel completed a long-standing project of digging a well. The well was dug to provide drinking water and irrigation for the farm in an extreme drought.Blend

Monmouth Coffee Roasters was founded in 1978 and since then, have occupied an important place in London's coffee world as purveyors of carefully sourced, single-origin beans. Their focus on individual farms and farmers over larger coops may seem de riguer these days but Monmouth has been pioneering this space for far longer than most.
