More from the roaster: 

My name is Ivonne Herrera. I’m 26 years old, and I’m currently studying clinical nutrition and raising a son. My passion for coffee started with the example of my dad. He has been harvesting coffee for more than 20 years in Guatemala.

Six years ago, I decided to have my own farm. Since the first time that I was there with my son, it gave me a peaceful feeling. But it has been very difficult because the prices in the markets have not been enough to cover all of the harvest expenses.
