San José Poaquil is located to the northwest of Antigua and Guatemala City. It is mainly an indigenous population, where the inhabitants speak the Kaqchikel dialect, and is thus composed mainly of small coffee producers.
Los Santos is the name of a blend of coffees coming from farms in Chimaltenango, where the cherries are processed. This coffee is sold to Bella Vista from two “middlemen”” who buy cherries and pulped cherries from the smallholders of San José Poaquil. These individuals have been working with Bella Vista for some time and thus understand the quality expectations of the mill. Bella Vista handles the sorting and packaging of Los Santos coffee.
