Finca Pampojilá was founded and formally registered by Mr. Manuel Díaz and his wife Mónica Díaz Barrios in 1850. From that time they began planting and growing coffee. The coffee from this farm was distinguished for its quality from its inception. In 1940 it was awarded the Gold Medal by the National Coffee Council of Guatemala, for its high quality.
In 2010, tropical storm Agatha caused natural disasters in the area where Finca Pampojilá is located. As a result of landslides caused by this natural phenomenon, a considerable area of the farm was destroyed. The property was worked by the Díaz family until 2012 when it was acquired by Agropecuaria Atitlán.
Agropecuaria Atitlán has renewed the cultivation of coffee in 180 hectares, planting better varieties, good agricultural practices, modern practices, technical production systems, sustainability and environmental conservation.
Finca Pampojilá is a member of the Association of Private Nature Reserves of Guatemala. 50% of the farm is committed to remaining in its natural state as a humid tropical forest. Agropecuaria Atitlán develops a comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility program focused on supporting the surrounding communities where its collaborators come from. It is focused on areas of Health and Education.
