  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Although much of the coffee produced in Antigua originates from large estates, handed down from generation-to-generation in the Spanish families who settled there; many remains at the hands of indigenous smallholder farmers scattered across the slopes of the region’s volcanoes.

    The brainchild of fourth-generation coffee farmer and owner of the Beneficio Bella Vista, 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.
