About this coffee producer

Andres Fahsen is the 5th generation of his family to manage the 56-hectare Finca Patzibir, an organic farm on the slopes of Volcán Tolimán, one of the most prominent natural features of the breathtaking Lake Atitlán.  

Patzibir sits in the municipality of San Lucas Tolimán, on the southern shore of the lake near the border between the departments of Sololá and Chimaltenango. Atitlán is considered a place of ancient importance and still home to some of Guatemala’s most visible indigenous communities. Atitlán’s surface sits at almost 1600 meters and is a volcanic basin surrounded by dramatically steep escarpments, and, including Tolimán, numerous volcanoes. “Patzibir” is a Kaqchikel word meaning “where the Tzibir tree lives”, in reference to a native tree species in the region, which makes up part of Patzibir’s canopy. 

The cherry harvested at Patzibir is processed in the city of Antigua, at the wet mill of Los Volcanes Coffee. At the Los Volcanes’ wet mill, cherry is delivered daily throughout harvest where it is sorted for uniformity, depulped, and fermented for up to 48 hours in a covered, temperature-controlled warehouse of ceramic tanks. After fermentation is complete, parchment is passed through a pressurized water siphon for cleaning and density grading, and then dried on the site’s large patio or in mechanical dryers.
