The farm of Finca La Providencia is situated in the high mountains surrounding the town of San Pedro Necta in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. The farm has been in the Palacios family since 1954, and since that time it has been passed down through three generations, starting with Maximiliano Palacios through to his son Javier Palacios Funes on to the current owner, Max Ariel Palacios Villatoro. The Palacios are highly experienced and dedicated coffee producers, with a deep love of the land and a comprehensive knowledge of the region.

Finca La Providencia’s location and elevation gives it an advantage in producing a very high quality coffee. The farm’s water resources are abundant, with several springs across the area. Nearly 30% of the farm is kept under native forest, which helps prevent soil washing down the steep inclines and preserves the local ecology. Coffee is selectively hand harvested and is then eco-pulped using the farm’s multiple Penagos pulpers. The pulpers reduce the environmental impact of wet processing by reducing water usage and waste. After pulping, the mucilage is removed and then the coffee is delivered to dry on the farm’s extensive patios or (if the weather is wet) in the guardiolas, where it dries at a slow and even temperature.
