El Bosque (meaning "the forest" in Spanish) was a run-down farm in a little-known region of Chimaltenango before Luis Pedro took over and reorganized the farm. With years, and generations, of experience, Luis Pedro has been able to revive this land and now the farm has also started to cultivate some Pacamara and Gesha.
The Chimaltenango area, although being little-known in the coffee business, boasts clean, complex and tactile coffees grown in high altitudes and volcanic soil.
