About the Coffee Farm / Estate
In 1957, Virgilio Pérez acquired a small piece of land in the Aldea de Hoja Blanca, municipality of Cuilco, department of Huehuetenango. Don Virgilio built a small house on the land. Around his house he began planting coffee and taking advantage of the good conditions of the land for the cultivation of coffee. Now, in 2017, Ernesto Perez and his father Jorge oversee the farm with the help of Jorge Villatoro. The harvest period is between December to March every year with an average temperature of 23 Degrees Celsius in shade.

More than just a bean…
Every coffee begins with a story and is unique in its own ways. Since our opening in 2012, we have chosen to focus on this “behind the scene” work, where we try to unveil the story of each coffee and present them to you. We are firm believers of working closely with the source to foster a relationship with the producers. We travel long distances to visit farms and cooperatives to see for ourselves the hard work put into the coffees that we are buying. In addition to our continuous pursuit for better tasting coffees, we soak in the experiences to understand from our peers every step from farming, harvesting and processing of coffee cherries. Through the journeys, friendships are built with the local partners/producers whom we trust will take good care of the farms and their workers.
Time and resources are committed each year for origin trips to maintain and explore new relationships and seek out more coffees. At Nylon, every facet of our business is based on fair, sustainable, traceable and transparent relationships across the coffee chain. For certain coffee origins, we only work with trusted exporters who adhere to the same principles as us. We cherish our relationships with our customers, professional peers, partners at origins and a handful of trusted exporters. This network of relationships fuels our passion in creating an incredible coffee, delivered through an exemplary experience, that we hope will leave a lasting impression on you.
This is our philosophy, and this is our story.
