We've visited this farm on six occasions. While the coffees are absolutely fantastic, Santa Felisa is also very committed to the children in their community. Until Covid caused it to temporarily close, Santa Felisa and their coffee partners ran and financially supported a day school in the nearby town. Schools in Guatemala were still closed on our last visit in March 2022. Santa Felisa now allows mother's to bring their children with them to work and the Farm supplies a teacher to be with the students during the harvest season.
