Irma Pacheco Reyes tends a small farm she inherited from her father, just a short drive from her family's residence at Finca Palo de Quina. She is a busy woman - mother to four boys and a driving spirit and member of the resistance to the mine at Escobal. (Her full bio is in our producers section). This year's coffee, while earlier than last year's COVID delayed shipment, is still behind our preferred launch date because of maddening administrative delays at the dry-mill. November is the new June, perhaps. Despite all this, Irma's coffee is showing very well and we're both happy and fortunate to feature it again.
