- Complex Flavor With Notes of Green Apple & Chocolate Syrup
- Comes in 12 oz Packages

We source this coffee via Yellow Rooster Coffee imports, a local Tampa Bay Company.
Finca Siquem has produced coffee since 1921. The farm is located in Palencia and employs hundreds of people during the harvest season. The workers, some of them have worked for three generations on the farm, have an outstanding experience in picking up coffee in as its best. The farm holds its own Wet and Dry mill, which assures the best quality at the moment of export. There are two main programs designed medical health treatment for specific major health issues to employees in need.
Sustainably Grown since 1921
Via Yellow Rooster; Carlos Roldán began his career in coffee working for an exporter over 25 years ago, learning the ropes on the job in all the things that often fall through the cracks as far the “romanticization” of coffee goes. Contracts, deadlines, logistics, coffee milling and categorization — it’s a long way from the world of latte art competitions or dewey, cool sunrises over a perfumed mountainside of coffee blossoms.
His time with the exporter, however, allowed him to develop relationships with farmers all over Guatemala, and serendipitously, gave him the inside track on knowing what it takes to have a productive, sustainable farm. That’s when, roughly 10 years ago, Carlos, his wife and children took the leap on buying Finca Siquem in Palencia, just a short drive east of Guatemala City. Siquem (see-KEM) had previously been owned by an older farmer with whom Carlos had worked, and when he was ready to sell, Carlos was first in line.
Taking over the 140 hectares (situated between 1350 – 1850 masl), the Roldán family began right away to create a model farm for the region. Apart from the Caturra and Bourbon varieties that already grew on the farm, they began to specialize in Pacamara, and recently diversified into the cultivation of Marsellesa as well. While the majority of coffee is washed and patio dried in the traditional manner, we were excited to collaborate with the Roldáns on developing their honey, natural and low-oxygen lines, in addition to receiving some of the very first coffees they dried on raised beds!
