Finca Nueva Granada, named after the last Arab Fortress in Europe, was one of the first farms to achieve Rainforest Alliance Certification. Located between two of Guatemala’s looming volcanoes, Tajumulco and Tacana, Finca Nueva Granada has become a perfect example of how a farm can become more than a source of delicious coffee. The farm has on site schooling and implements impressive sustainable practices for coffee processing. Finca Nueva Granada uses its own clear spring water for pulping and implements “shade-grown” techniques to protect the environment in which it relies so heavily upon.
