2016 Harvest Update: San Jeronimo Miramar

It’s an exciting time here in Guatemala during the coffee harvest!!! In some regions the last picking has just finished, whereas in others the harvest has been a little delayed. In Huehuetenango it’s been raining, which is really uncharacteristic for this time of year. When it rains, it is for three days at a time. This is a problem if you’re drying coffee on patios. It’s ok for parchment in the first two days on the patio, but afterwards it’s a huge issue. This year’s rain patterns are making more producers think about building covered, raised beds for next season.
