Guatemala El Tambor

  • My friend Edwin Martinez imports coffee to the US from his home country of Guatemala. We reunited recently and I went there to visit a coffee grower named Victor Calderon. On the way to his farm, El Tambor, Victor talked about the way he figured out how to combat the fungus epidemic in his coffee. He told me about the diversity of trees, plants, insects, and animals on his farm. How he supports his farm workers with land, cattle, and fishing. Victor is highly intelligent and ecologically-minded, and he grows coffee only using organic and biodynamic agriculture practices. Victor is a meticulous, eccentric, but generous man, and that spirit shows through in this excellent coffee.
