The Q graders in our cupping lab scored this coffee 86.25.

Roberto Cantó's father-in-law, Olegario Primero, was the first coffee producer in his area, planting his first coffee shrub about 20 years ago. Olegario sold his coffee plot 10 years ago to Roberto and Roberto’s two sisters' husbands. In order to purchase the land, all three men migrated to the United States, to work and save money. They traveled twice, staying for stints of three years and two years, respectively, before returning home to establish their coffee plantation. In addition to coffee, they produce tomatoes, beans and corn in Cubulco, and they now also have a cattle farm in the northern department of Peten. La Fisga, the farm's name, is the Spanish word for harpoon—the brothers’ favorite way to fish from a creek that runs across their farm up north.
