MORE THAN COFFEE

The Story

Bernabé is a community leader from Cruz Grade village in Santa Barbara, Huehuetenango. He manages his 1.4-hectare farm La Vega del Rio with his wife Ovidia Sales where they have planted Pache Común variety, a natural mutation of Typica found in Guatemala. As a family they work together to carry out all farm work during the harvest cycle including activities such as shade management, fertilization, picking, processing, drying amongst other tasks to collect and sale their coffee in parchment.

Over 35 years, Bernabé has dedicated his life to growing coffee and other food staples, especially corn and beans. He started by himself, and along the way, he faced challenges because there wasn’t much interest in coffee back then. However, ten years ago, he became more involved in his community and specialty coffee market, and he realized that by working together as a community, they could find new buyers and move all coffee produced in the area. Now, as the group leader, he has been key to finding new markets and establishing four harvests ago a fruitful relationship with Caravela. He shares, he is happy to see all the work done is reflected on each bean and each cup of coffee.
