When he is not managing the sizeable Bella Vista mill, Luis Pedro Zelaya stays busy working diligently on the Hunapu project. With an aim to match the increasingly high demand for specialty coffee, the “Hunapu” title comes with a rigorous set of criteria helping to set a high bar for local specialty farmers and the Antigua region as whole. Coffee cherries must be of the bourbon variety whose shrubs typically yield fewer beans, but make up for it with a characteristic complex candy sweetness and fruity gusto. Must be 21 and over to consume. Just kidding.

  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    The brainchild of fourth-generation coffee farmer Luis Pedro Zelaya, the Hunapu project seeks both to isolate top-quality coffees and help Antigua’s indigenous population increase their infrastructure for producing high quality coffees.

    The criteria these coffees must meet in order to be bear the name “Hunapu” - meaning “mountain of flowers” - is rigid and begins with 100% bourbon variety cherries collected from amidst the mixed-shade micro-climate and nutrient-rich, volcanic soil Antigua is known for. Farmers deliver ripe, sorted cherries to Beneficio Bella Vista where they undergo a long, cool fermentation and thorough washing before being dried on raised beds.
