    This coffee is produced at the Pampojila farm, a plantation located in the region of Solola in the municipality of Santa Barbara. Located not far from the Atitlan volcano, the farm benefits from a rich volcanic soil, which is a considerable asset for cultivating coffee trees. All are grown using responsible, sustainable and socially viable production practices. It was following the Agatha storm in 2012 that Alex Herrera bought the Pampojila farm, whose production tools had been completely destroyed. Having restored it and through sheer determination, he managed to begin production again and in so doing restored jobs for about one hundred families. Since discovering coffee production at a farm like this (500 hectares of volcanic soil at an altitude of between 1,250 and 1,500 metres, a mill, etc.), Alex sees coffee in a new light, and he now considers it a regional product. It is why he is fully committed to renovating and developing the farm, first by replanting coffee trees then by renovating the mill. Today he has 250 hectares of Caturra coffee trees planted at an altitude of between 1,470 and 1,720 metres; the remaining 250 hectares serve as a nature reserve.
