The Beneficio Pastores mill was built in the late 1800's as a flour mill. In the early 20th century, Pastores began milling coffee.

In Antigua perfectly ripe beans are carefully handpicked and delivered to Pastores mill. Here the careful process of preparing the perfect coffee continues: depulping and a very precise 100% natural fermentation are the first steps. Coffee is then fully washed using fresh spring water and completely sun dried under the radiant Guatemalan sun. Prior to shipping the beans are hand-sorted by women with vast experience in this "art".
