  • Manuel Velasquez Aguilar’s small coffee farm, Finca El Naranjo, is a top-class Organic smallholder farm located in the highlands of La Democracia in north-western Huehuetenango.

    Manuel has been established at El Naranjo for decades, first purchasing a plot of land which forms part of the current farm in 1985. Since then, Manuel has grown his coffee operation to be his primary income. His organic management practices at El Naranjo are very well developed, with Manuel and his three permanent employees working year-round to control pests and manage plant health using organic practices including fertilization, shade growing and conservation of native foliage. Manuel uses his coffee pulp as compost, as well as vermiculture and compost from neighbours’ animals.

    We are thrilled to welcome back Manuel and El Naranjo again in the 2023-24 season, as a staple favourite of our espresso line-up!
