The history of the El Socorro farm dates back to the 19th century, when Antonio López Colom started working there. Many years later, one of Antonio’s descendants, Maria Colom, together with her husband Mario De La Cerda, purchased a large farm composed of three separate properties: El Socorro, San Guayabá and Rio Arriba. Today, their son and grandson continue the couple’s work on the very same land. Now into its fourth generation, this family farm is located at a particularly high altitude, which is what endows the coffee that grows there with its exceptional quality and award-winning taste.
For over 20 years, the “Cup of Excellence” (COE) competition has been pioneering integrity and transparency in the coffee industry. The level of scrutiny that COE coffees undergo is truly unmatched anywhere else. This means that the quality of these coffees also has no equals.
The supply of “Guatemala El Socorro” is extremely low, so it belongs to the Limited Edition line.
Due to its exceptional quality and taste, this coffee is marked as Specialty. According to the SCA grading system, it scores 90.1 points out of 100.
