San Patricio Agua Zarca




Peach, dark chocolate, molasses

This week another visit to Guatemala!

Agua Zarca – meaning pale blue water – is an annexed (a separate but attached piece of land) of the main El Limon farm of San Patricio. This group of farms in the Palencia region belongs to the Reyes family, who bought it in 1997 and began planting coffee. Not traditionally a major coffee-growing region, their success has inspired others in their community to begin coffee production.
