THE STORY BEHIND

Pablo Chuy Flores is the fourth-generation coffee farmer and the owner of Finca Bella Vista. Finca Bella vista is located in Ayarza, Santa Rosa, Guatemala, at the altitude of 1,600 - 2,000 masl. Finca Bella Vista lies around an ancient volcano crater, that is now a lake called Laguna de Ayarza. The lake is famous for wonderfully clean water and unique flora and fauna in it.

Pablo Chuy's great-grandparents, grandparents and his dad have all been growing coffee. Now the farm is managed by the fourth generation, that continues the family enterprise carrying on in the coffee business. All family members are involved in the farm's operation, so that the fifth generation of coffee producers will be ready to take over the business.
There are about 45 full-time workers and 95-170 seasonal employees, hired during the harvest. Accommodation, amenities, general medical and transport benefits are provided for workers. The family has won the respect of the local community thanks to their efforts in reforestation, water conservation and community development projects, such as healthcare and school programs. They also assist nearby producers by buying and processing those producers' coffees on their wet mill.
