The coffee production started with La Reforma Farm, acquired by Mr. Manuel Pérez in 1904, which was used to produce tobacco, corn and beans.
Later his son Leonardo continued with the same crops, it was not until 1939 that Leonardo the second began with the coffee production. Leonardo the second started working incredibly young; he, his brothers and cousins cut the coffee and processed it manually. He said that when the coffee was ready, they placed it on mules and they walked for 6 days from Agua Dulce, Cuilco to Huehuetenango, when he returned he was so happy because he had sold the coffee and could ride the mules back to the farm.
Today the fourth generation continues with this fascinating crop, and it has been so important to the Pérez`s Family that the fifth generation is already working to make the farm become one of the best ones of Huehuetenango. Now we have new varieties like pacamara, java, bourbon rosado and moka, hopefully next year we will have the opportunity to cup their first trials
