Guatemala Source Trip October 24 2013, 0 Comments

In February Darrel visited two of our Guatemala source farms, in an effort to learn more about our partners' farming techniques and on going improvements to their land. He was bale to see first hand that these farms are committed to quality in their beans and fair labor practices for their employees.

We're excited to share a few photos from his trip.These were primarily taken around the Piña Blanca Farm near Santa Rosa Guatemala.
