About This Coffee
Esquipulas, named in the native Ch'orti language meaning "risen land", is situated about 190km southeast of Guatemala City. In the 18th century, Spanish immigrants were drawn to the vibrant, fertile valleys of the Chiquimula Department and its strong Catholic roots. The town's basilica houses the Black Christ, a unique religious relic, drawing thousands of pilgrims each January and March for religious processions. This annual pilgrimage has earned Esquipulas the title of "Central American Capital of Faith". While coffee production in Nuevo Oriente is relatively new, it has a rich history dating back to the 1950s when the Catholic Church introduced and distributed the first coffee seeds in the region. Today, Esquipulas is renowned for its high quality coffee, and the inaugural winner of the Guatemalan Coffee Internet Auction hailed from this area.
