Guatalon is located at Belen Village, Santa Rosa de Lima, Santa Rosa; 35 kms from Guatemala City. It has a total area of 50 hectares, 15 of which produce coffee and the rest possess a natural forest reserve of pine, cypress and other varieties.
With over 60 years in coffee production, the Juarez family is currently in its fourth generation of coffee growers, and has continued its legacy producing one of the best coffees of the region.
The name “El Guatalon” comes from the term “guatal”, a word used in some Central American countries that refers to a piece of land where cattle graze after the corn harvest.
As coffee growers, we are committed with keeping our natural resources and biodiversity. El Guatalon is a fantastic place to do mountain hiking thru the coffee forest and to experience a unique bird watching.

Wet mill:
Ecologic wet mill whose water source comes from natural wells. A method of water recirculation is utilized in every process with the intention of using less quantity of water in order to protect our ecosystem. We have water treatment in sediment piles and use pulp as organic fertilizer in plantations by transforming it with lombricompost.
All of our coffee is sun dried in patios for around 10-12 days, which produces very consistent and long-lasting quality coffees.
