CATALAN DE LAS MERCEDES
In the town of San Martín Jilotepeque, Nicholas began working on his family farm at a young age and became Owner in his 20’s. A student of modern agronomy with a degree in agricultural engineering, he is known at the roastery for his expert processing methods and separating each lot by variety.
Pilot Coffee founder, Andy met Nico in 2013 during a Cup of Excellence ceremony in Guatemala. He was instantly impressed by his coffees and our relationship continues to be extremely collaborative. Our relationship with Nico spans across his family, including his mother Ruth who shares her coffees with us from Finca San Jeronímo.
Coffees from Nicholas’ farming community of Chimaltenango are currently featured in our seasonal blend ‘COMMUNITY.’ A portion of the proceeds from each bag will directly support programs for coffee workers and their families at origin.
