Ader is the third generation to manage the small family farm.
He came home after working in the States for a stint as a builder’s labourer to take over operations on the farm, but sadly had to leave his 13- year-old son.
Ader is the first in his family to implement new practices in the field and in the beneficio (wet processing) to access the specialty market. He’s been working hard for five years and we feel very lucky to be his first direct buyer. Not only are he and his family farming old varietals at serious altitude in one of the most famed coffee regions of the world, but he is young, working completely independently and very motivated to implement new processes.
We purchase parchment coffee from Ader, transferring money directly to his bank account. We paid 1,600 Quetzales per quintal (100 pounds of parchment).The highest they have received from previous buyers is 1300 – 1400 Quetzales. We’re looking towards a bright future with Ader. He’s all over whatsapp, we’re in constant contact with feedback and farm news. We know his coffee will only get better and that the family will receive higher prices accordingly.
