Sebastián Díaz Ramírez is a second-generation coffee producer in the town of Petatán in Huehuetenango region.
During the harvest Sebastian makes sure that only the ripe cherries are picked.
The cherries are depulped the same day of the picking and fermented in plastic tubs in water for 24 hours.
After the fermentation the beans are washed and eventually dried on a patio in the sun for five days.
The name of Sebastian’s farm, Yulchen, is the local indigenous language Popti and means “Between the Stones”.
The farm was named after the large stones which are at the farm and keep the temperatures low as well as create local caves where bats and other birds live.
