After traveling to Latin America from Germany, Horst Spitzke discovered a passion that would redefine his life.
Why we love this coffee
As he settled into the lush rainforests of Cobán in Guatemala, he began experimenting with planting different crops, eventually finding his calling through coffee. At his Flor del Rosario farm today, his love of coffee is matched only by his love for his workers, whom he views as family—in turn, they affectionately know him as “Papi.”
Horst is proud of everything they’ve achieved together and feels he wouldn’t be able to run the farm without them. The enthusiasm and compassion that go into every bean reflect the personal journey that makes this cup special.
