Back to Guatemala Huehuetenango Nueva Armenia Grotto
Passed along in the Recinos family for four generations, the Nueva Armenia farm produces some of the most excellent coffees in the region. Mr. Teodosio Recinos acquired the land in 1850 and in 1900 passed it to his son Antonio Recinos Molina. Antonio committed himself to preserving the natural biodiversity of the land while experimenting in premium coffee cultivation. In his efforts to do this, he was one of the first to introduce the use of the typica variety in Guatemala. In 1940, he passed the farm to his two sons Enrique and Antonio, who continued their father’s dedication to preserving the natural beauty of the place.
Today Antonio’s twin sons Jorge and Javier run the farm. They both have studied Environmental Engineering and made Finca Nueva Armenia one of the first certified Organic farms in Guatemala in the year of 1999. Today, the two brothers take turns living on the farm to ensure that production continues with the utmost dedication to quality and environmental standards. The brothers’ commitment to the natural beauty of the farm is unmatched, and the effort shines through in the lovely coffees that come to us from Finca Nueva Armenia.
