Down on the Farm

It is the beginning of a new crop on one of the blooming coffee trees at the Cafe’ Don Julian farm we work closely with in Guatemala.

Here is some background on the farm:

We are a company involved in high quality ornamental plants and gourmet coffee production and exports.

The coffee tradition started by our great-grandfather, Julián Tallien de Cabarrús, a French visionary, who first came to Guatemala during the XIX century and was impressed by the region’s climate, which he noticed was ideal for establishing a coffee plantation. A couple of years later, he became one of the first coffee producers in Guatemala. His farm and coffee plantations were first located near the Atitlan Lake region and then, looking for better places to grow coffee, the plantation moved to Fraijanes, one of the best quality producing regions in Guatemala.
