Luis Valdes Sr and his son Luis (Wicho) Valdes are visionaries for their region. They went against odds and built a reputation for quality and a market for specialty coffees from Coban. I got to spend some time with them in Guatemala and they explained all of the challenges they face. Most recently, they have been managing moisture and how it affects coffee tree health. One of the coolest things was how specific they are in the pruning of the coffee shade trees. Too much shade and moisture will contribute to leaf fungus; too little shade and the coffee will not be able to thrive.The result of their hard work (several Cup of Excellence awards not-withstanding) is evident in the cup. I can't wait for you to try this sibling of Santa Isabel.
