At 1550 MASL in Santa Barbara, Honduras, sits Finca El Cielito, owned and managed by Joel Guzman. Joel is one of the more experienced producers in the region, and was consistently producing high quality coffee every year, until 2012. As coffee leaf rust disease swept through Central America, Joel lost a great deal of his trees, and the quality of his crop diminished. Now, 5 years on, his farm has begun to flourish, and we are once again seeing more amazing coffee from Joel Guzman.
