Background: 

Finca La Bendicion, meaning “the Blessing” in Spanish, is located in the village of El Paraiso, La Libertad municipality in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. The land is deep and fertile with a lot of calcium carbonate while chalum shade trees, which are good at fixing nitrogen, improve the soil and protect and shade coffee trees. 

Edelfo Hidalgo Don Roger, owner of Finca la Bendicion,  got an education and became a school teacher in the 1970s. He returned to teach in his community. Knowing he wanted to do more than teach, Don Roger saved his money. He soon purchased his first parcel of coffee land and thus, became a coffee grower.
