A Shining Start

Bean Line

Wilter Guillermo Lomas Lopez is new to coffee farming, but not new to his passion for coffee. In 2014 he planted his first coffee trees, with his first proper harvest just a few years later. That same year he participated in Ecuador's Taza Dorada and took home fifth place. Off and running, Guillermo enlisted agronomist help to strategize against disease and is working towards a more sustainable farm daily.

GGET Coffee Geography

Small but mighty

Guillermo's small 3-hectare farm dedicates half its land to coffee production—what felt like a risky endeavor when he began planting Typica and Sidra plants here in Pichincha less than a decade ago. Today, Guillermo grows his coffee under the shade of plantain and guamo trees. His coffee is fully washed, then dried on raised beds on a covered patio. We're thrilled to start a relationship with Guillermo and see how his evolving farm improvements affect his already great coffee.
