The Echeverría brothers own and manage Santa Catalina. They have 95 hectares, 70 of which are planted with coffee and the remaining 25 are a forest reserve close to the Acatenango volcano. The altitude on the farm ranges from 1550m to 2100m. The higher slopes are planted with Bourbon and the comparatively lower areas with the other cultivars: Caturra, Catuaí and Pache. In the last few years Pedro and Manuel completed a long-standing project of digging a well. The well was the first of a four-step project to provide both drinking water and irrigation, two small water reservoirs for the high grown areas, construction of infrastructure to distribute the water from the reservoirs throughout the farm, and the ability to pump the water up the mountain from the well to have access to the water at the highest points of the farm. This year alongside a large lot of Bourbon and Caturra we have selected a small lot of Peaberry from the same varietals. A coffee cherry usually produces two seeds, sometimes three and around 5% of the time a singular round little bean like a small pea.
