Farmer

Teodoro Engelhardt the 4th is considered a visionary coffee producer in Guatemala. Managing Finca La Bella in the 4th generation, his goal is to create a self-sustainable ecosystem on his farm, that is naturally producing outstanding coffees. Being positioned inside a tropical forest, the microclimate of the farm creates a very unique cup profile. Teodoro has been focusing on planting different varieties such as Pacamara and Caturra. He is also experimenting with processing methods by building solar drying tents to dry the coffee more evenly, thereby improving the fermentation process.
