Origin

This beautiful lot comes to us from Evelia Gomez, who's farm is located up in the mountains of San Pedro Necta, Huehuetenango. Calling her "La Viuda" (the Widow) may seem crass, however, this is the name used by coffee folks around her. Most families in the area have small farms and no surprise that they often share names. These nicknames are a way of differentiating one person from the next - and so for Evelia they came up with "La Viuda". Evelia and her late husband ran their farm together, until his untimely death, in which she's taken over on her own. The farm is quite large - especially for the area, where much of the small holders plant on a few hectares shared with their family - and is a huge job for a single person to oversee. One look at her perfectly lined rows of coffee shrubs covering the lush valley and you can see what an amazing job she's done taking care of her investment. The farm is a range of altitudes from about 1500 masl on the floor to over 1900 masl at the highest point.
