The Calderon Capetillo Manor has been run by the Echeverria family for several generations, and now Mr. Pedro Echeverria is in charge of the management of the estate. This estate has a unique geographical location, located in the inner side of the Antigua Valley in Guatemala, between the Acatenango and Agoa volcanic belts.
Capetillo is an old estate and was originally a short-term crop like sugar, but since coffee was grown decades ago, the machines that were used to grind the sugar are now being used to remove the coffee cherries The process of peeling and pulping fruit, and so far they have been using water power as the main source of electricity.
This coffee farm is vertically integrated from cultivating coffee seeds to packaging and arranging coffee exports. They have also recently upgraded their equipment and installed the latest generation of sorting machines and electronic picking machines to ensure stable and high-quality coffee. An endless stream of production.
