Guatemala Huehuetenango Rio Ocho Tixin Ton-
Martha Bernando Carillo de Jiminez is an indigenous Mayan coffee producer who speaks Mam. Together with her sister Martina Bernando de Martin and brother-in-law Juan Jose Martin, she cultivates coffee in the Sierra de Los Cuchumatanes mountains of Huehuetenango. This particular lot, called Tixin Ton, is under Martha’s care. The coffee undergoes wet processing at a site amongst the coffee fields before being dried in the sun at their at home artisan wet mill. Processing in the remote area of Rio Ocho brings out fruity flavors and less acidic characteristics. Since the beginning of their business, our importer has worked with these farmers!
