Pedro Trejo is a lifelong coffee grower from the town of San Pedro la Laguna on the southwest shore of Lake Atitlán. Like many farmers in San Pedro, he does not own a particular farm per se, but rather several small plots scattered along the slope of Volcan San Pedro. Pedro Trejo’s plots range from 1650 to a staggering 2000 meters above sea level. After picking his coffee cherries, he delivers them to a co-operative, the Asociación de Productores de Café Atitlán (AProCafé). Like all members of AProCafé, Mr. Pedro grows his coffee using only organic fertilizer and other natural implements.


Pedro Trejo’s coffee is washed and dried at AProCafé’s central wet mill called Valle del Eskoll, located in the town of Cerro de Oro. After depulping, washing station manager Oscar Julajuj (hula-hooj) allows the coffee to ferment for 12-24 hours, washes it, then dries the coffee on patio. This is the second year Pedro Trejo’s coffee has been separated from the association as a whole, as it is of an excellent quality.
