Manuel Tzic Saso's farm is at 1875 masl in Aldea Panyebar. Aldea roughly translates to township, and Panyebar is officially part of the town of San Juan la Laguna, on the southwest shore of Lake Atitlan. As the crow flies, Panyebar is 5-10 miles uphill from the lake shore. But, to actually get there you'd need to drive from San Juan north along the lake shore, then upmountain to Santa Clara, then back down the backside of the ridge that sits above San Juan. All said, it's about 15 miles and an hour of driving from the lake to Manuel's house.
Manuel washes and ferments his coffee on-farm in buckets, and dries his coffee on patio. It is all caturra and bourbon, and total production is about 20 bags.
