This is the sixth year we've purchased coffee from Finca Buena Vista in Guatemala. This is a farm that's owned by Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora - the same contact we deal with for all of our Guatemalan offerings. He has become a great relationship of ours in Guatemala and we're constantly happy with the quality of coffee that he produces. He's the proprietor of wet and dry mill, Bella Vista. A quality focused mill, ensuring transparency, constant improvement and delicious coffees. The coffees of Buena Vista are processed and dried at Bella Vista.

The farm agricultural management includes tissue management (pruning and suckering), plant nutrition (soil and foliage analysis) and pest and disease control and strict shade management. After reaping the cherries, the coffee is taken to Bella Vista for wet and dry milling. Coffee is separated by lots (day of picking, variety and altitude). Then it goes through the whole process of depulping, fermentation, washing and drying. The coffee is then dried in greenhouses. The greenhouse allows the coffee to dry in a controlled environment and to dry gradually which should result in a better cup. The airflow permits a more uniform drying process and the coffee beans can easily be hand sorted. Bella Vista is investing heavily in new drying facilities that mitigate direct sunlight, have controllable temperatures and have tiered drying beds for maximum efficiency of space.

After some resting time at Bella Vista, the coffee goes through the dry milling process. The parchment from the coffee is removed and then the green beans are separated by size and weight. Finally the coffee is picked by an electronic eye, which removes all the damaged beans by using a color scale. This machine is using UV light to identify fungus, defect or other issues that you and I could not physically see. Twice will the coffee go through this machine. Through all this process, we assure the best quality of coffee and that's been proven the past few seasons on our menu.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
