Why Choose Us
Godoys de Guatemala is a medium sized family operated coffee company. The Godoy family is dedicated to bringing you the finest gourmet coffee from Guatemala. The family plantations were planted a centruy ago, on the Moyuta Volcano, near the border with El Salvador, using the original gourmet quality 'Bourbon' coffee beans.
The farm is located 5,000 to 6,000 feet in elevation. The farms have never been sprayed with chemical pesticides or fertilized with non-organic sources since they were planted. The natural fertilizers that are used come from the coffee process itself and on-farm produced compost. All of the coffee is shade grown, using nitrogen-fiing trees to help improve soil composition and provide a natural bird and animal refuge.
All the coffee is hand-picked, selecting only the ripest beans. On farm is located a small, wet-mill which takes the coffee berries from the wine-colored, sweet sticky fruit to the parchment covered seed. During the wet-mill process the berry is depulped, and the remaining seeds are stored overnight for fermentation to removed the remaining slimy fruit. Then the seeds are washed in running water and set out to dry in the sun the wet-mill system used on the Godoy farm recycles the water to minimize environmental impact. All the water used after the wet-mill process is reabsorbed into the soil, where it fertilizes instead of contaminating water supplies.
The roasting facility in Guatemala City roasts coffee daily on order to insure freshness. When an order is received, the coffee is roasted and within 24 hours shipped out.
