The newest micro-lot from Mokkamestarit comes from Huehuetanango coffee region in Guatemala. Micaela Domingo is a second generation coffee farmer on her small 5,8 hectare T'Zun-Wit'z coffee estate in Conceptión Huista municipality. During harvest Micaela takes care that only the ripest cherries are picked and carefully processed during the next five days.
The name of the coffee estate, T'zun-Wit'z, comes from the local native language and means "Birth of the Mountain". According to history, local people performed religious rites on the mountain in order to improve fertility and harvest.
Micaela inherited the estate from her parents and manages the farm alone with her children. Due to financial difficulties, Micaela's husband had to move to the USA. "Being a female farmer has not limited my coffee farming. I am grateful to my children and the neighbouring families for the success of my farm.", says Micaela. She is a member of the El Sendero cooperative that offers guidance and support to the coffee farmers of Conceptión Huista.
