El Libano is located in a traditional Guatemalan coffee region La Pampa, Acatenango, Chimaltenango. The owner Mr. Herbert Estuardo Perez Liquidano, is a third generation farmer and has looked after the farm formerly known as La Pampa since 1992.
Effectively a farm of two halves with the remainder of La Pampa owned by Herbert’s brother, the top area is up at 1350m, with a number of varietals including a small geisha lot, plus the rest of the farm including the drying patios in full view of Volcan Acatenango.
Imbued with a strong sense of responsibility to the local community where the farm remains a valued employer, Herbert has donated the land on which the local school sits, and provides modern accommodation for the workers.
An excellent farm and award winning & dedicated producer.
