Efraín Castillo purchased El Frutal, a 10-manzana farm (i.e. 1.7 acres/0.7 hectares), in 2004. The farm is located in Huehuetenango, the famous Guatemalan coffee-producing region, which offers the highest altitudes in the country. There, Efraín grows coffee of the Caturra varietal, alongside beans, lemons, and other crops.
The coffee from El Frutal is picked perfectly ripe and is depulped the same day using a traditional depulper. The coffee is first fermented in tanks for 18 hours and then is dried on concrete patios for 36 hours. This coffee is produced in very small quantities, called “microlots”, making it a particular rare coffee.

I purchased this as a birthday gift for my sister as she's been upping her coffee game this past year, and when she opened her package, she was absolutely thrilled about the Geisha!New York, USA
This Jamaica Blue Mountain is a coffee that can be drank black, even by someone who never has coffee black.London, United Kingdom
The aroma notes on this are superb. It has a very gentle, clean taste. Do recommend it as a treat or fancy gift.Paris, France
There was a mix up with my address and the UPS shipping company. Peter, from customer care, truly went above and beyond to rectify it. I couldn’t be more pleased with the attentiveness he provided. Customer oriented company and
AMAZING coffee.Toronto, Canada
Smoothest coffee you will ever drink. It’s pretty damn fantastic. I like the roast date was 3 days prior to receiving it.Hong Kong, China
I decided to splurge on Kona coffee and I was pleasantly surprised. I used an old V60 and drank it black with a little sugar. There is no comparison to regular coffee whatsoever. Delicious, with no bitterness or acidity. If you are a coffee lover you must treat yourself to this.Dubai, UAE
This brand changed the idea I had about coffee forever. What an aroma. What a delightful taste. This is in fact a premium coffee. I've been drinking something entirely different, I can now say. This is another league for the coffee world...Sydney, Australia
This coffee is so awesome! You can tell how fresh the coffee is when you first open the beautiful box. I drink regular Keurig cups at work, and on weekends I bring out the Hayman coffee and it feels like I've moved from beer to champagne.Los Angeles, USA
