Finca los nietos anuncia que un café granja orgánica boutique, y la etiqueta encaja perfectamente. Pedimos que nuestro hotel para reservar un tour personal de granjas locales, y nos reservaron Erwin Rivas que incluía esta granja en su recorrido. Está situado en el pequeño pueblo de San Lorenzo de El Cuba. Nos dimos por Raul el propietario. La granja abarca sólo 18 hectáreas al pie de una colina de la casa de la granja al noreste. Raúl es un bombero local/medic y esposa Cristina es americano. Curiosamente que les había visto la podría antes en un bar salsa en la ciudad. Aprendimos mucho sobre las plantas de café utilizado ( una mezcla de sabor Arábica y Robusta para volumen), que están plantados un par de metros bajo árboles de sombra. Aprendimos sobre el proceso para extraer las múltiples capas de los granos (Berry, Shell, el mucílago, pieles finas y 2). Todo eliminado es mantenido y utilizado. Algunos son compostados para fertilizantes, algunos quemado y el humo utilizados para tratar los arbustos contra la infección y decantada de licores de las bayas decomposing es usada como insecticida en spray. Las botellas de plástico llenos de líquido invierte cuelgan de los arbustos y árboles para capturar insectos. Cada Bush se producen café por 8 años una vez maduro (cuesta unos 3 años para producir). Se pueden recortar y crezcan para producir otra vez. También tienen su propio vivero de plantear nuevas plantas para reemplazar los que mueran o una plaga de insectos que está atacando plantaciones Centroamérica. Una vez los granos de café han sido tratados, están tostados y luego elegido por mano y se ordenan por tamaño, pruebas de hongos o Worms, etc. Cualquier Bean tan afectado le dan el café agria o sabor amargo. Esta granja es pequeño y produce unos 800 sacos al año, con más vendido a los turistas o los restaurantes locales. Parte trasera de la casa en la que nos sentamos en su hermoso jardín para beber café de la prensa francesa. Ahora generalmente prefiero audaz café fuerte, pero esto era suave, sin amargura y deliciosos sabores sutiles y diversos. Fue una maravilla y compramos un par de bolsos pequeños o café hizo pasar por delante de los tejidos locales.

Finca los Nietos advertises itself as an organic boutique coffee farm, and the label fits perfectly. We asked our hotel to book a personal tour of local farms, and they booked Erwin Rivas who included this farm in his tour. It is located in the small town of San Lorenzo el Cuba. We were toured by Raul the owner. The farm covers just 18 acres down a hill from the farmhouse facing northeast. Raul is a local firefighter/medic and his wife Christina is American. Curiously we had seen them the might before at a salsa bar in town.

We learned a lot about the coffee plants used ( a mix of Arabica for flavour and Robusta for volume), which are planted a couple of meters apart under shade trees. We learned about the process for removing the multiple layers of the beans (berry, shell, mucilage, and 2 thin skins). Everything removed is kept and used. Some is composted for fertilizer, some is burned and the smoke used to treat the bushes against infection, and a liquor decanted from the decomposing berries is used as a spray insecticide. Inverted plastic bottles filled with liquid hang from the bushes and trees to capture insects.

Each bush will produce coffee for about 8 years once mature (takes about 3 years to produce). They can then be cut back and they will grow to produce again. They also have their own nursery to raise new plants to replace those that die from insects or a blight that is attacking Central American plantations.

Once the coffee beans have been treated, they are roasted and then picked over by hand and sorted for size, evidence of fungus or worms, etc. Any bean so impacted will give the coffee a sour or bitter taste. This farm is small and produces about 800 sacks a year, with most sold to tourists or local restaurants.

Back at the house we sat in their beautiful garden to drink coffee from a French press. Now I generally prefer bold strong coffee, but this was mild, with no bitterness and delicious subtle and diverse flavours. It was wonderful and we bought a couple of small bags or coffee made from local weathered fabrics.

This was such a great tour! This small organic coffee plantation was a great find with a real personal feel. The owners are super nice and friendly and really made the morning tour special, the grounds are incredible and the coffee, AWESOME! I would go back for the coffee, the people, the conversation or just to sit and play with the dogs in the jungle yard. Well worth going to this tour over a big plantation tour.

I visited Finca los Nietos in February 2014 with friends and family. There was a group of 5 of us and we all absolutely loved the experience. Raul and Christina (the owners) made us feel like family. After the crop-to-cup tour (where we saw the plants, learned about coffee plant diseases, saw the worm farm, hulled beans, checked out the drying beans, and asked a million and ten questions), we sat down to drink coffee with their family. They had family visiting from the U.S., and we spent hours talking with them, playing with the granddaughters (and puppies!), and just truly loving the experience. Every time I meet someone planning on visiting Antigua, I recommend Finca Los Nietos to them, and really hope they get the opportunity to visit such a lovely family and their wonderful, small coffee farm.

Our family visited Finca Los Nietos coffee farm in June, 2013. We took a chicken bus from the "bus lot" in Antigua, got off at the crossroads known as "El Guarda" and walked to the right 3 minutes to get there -Total cost for four: $2 (as opposed to the $25 cab ride option!). The farm was lovely, the tour highly informative, the coffee delicious, and the visit with the family amazing! Skip the big tourist tours and have a real traveler's experience!

Forget touring the big coffee factories and check out Finca Los Nietos (Farm of the Grandchildren). A family from Maine has taken over a tiny, 1-acre coffee farm and they show you how it's done, from their worm tank to squeezing the "jackets" off the coffee beans drying on their roof. It's just outside San Antonio Agua Calientes, a $25 cab ride from Antigua -- all capped off with a taste of their smooth, well-roasted Mayan Roast.
