Raul Valdes

The San Rafael Urias Estate is located in the valley of Antigua, Guatemala- one of the most prolific regions of amazing coffees in Guatemala.  At 5500 feet above sea level, Raul’s farm is situated in one of the finest climates for coffee in the Americas.  Its no wonder Guatemalan coffee is so sought after, and this region produces Cup of Excellence coffees year after year.

Three volcanoes tower above the estate.  These produce the mountain fed sources of naturally-filtered water that nourish Raul’s farm.  All the coffee plants are tended to by Raul and Isidro, the fourth generation of the Valdés family that started farming here in the 1800s.
