Growing across the mountains that encircle the ancient Mayan archaeological site, Zaculeu, this Los Ancestros community lot is grown by 13 small producers in the San Pedro Necta area.
While the area is steeped in ancient history, the producers that contribute to Los Ancestros are innovators and love to try new processes, varietals and business techniques to achieve better pricing. Their recent experiment with honey processed coffees achieved spectacular results. This drive to innovate, coupled with the diverse microclimates, varying altitudes and limestone rich soil, allows for some amazing coffees to be produced and this is a great example.
