Story

Renardo Ovalle is a third generation coffee producer from the region of Huehuetenango.

The Ovalle family is one of the most renowned Guatemalan families in the world of specialty coffee. They invest significantly in the local communities, providing a kindergarten and school for workers’ children, offering balanced meals for all of their workers, offering higher wages than other farms in Guatemala and backing other social projects.

We had the honor to meet with Renardo and his family half a year ago and tour his beautiful La Bolsa & El Rincon farms.
