Elmer Lopez named his farm Los Pinos after the towering pine trees that populate the area surrounding his home. He purchased his 18 hectare farm in 2013, and now, at age 48, continues performing the labor on the farm in pursuit of consistent, high quality coffees. 

The region of Huehuetenango is one of the first that we ever traveled to in the very early days of ReAnimator. We were astonished at the soaring elevations and incredible mountainside farms that small producers maintained, sometimes so steep it felt impossible to walk down them; let alone grow, maintain, and harvest coffee on. But that elevation, and the associated climate, creates an incredible set of growing conditions for coffee. 

The flavors out of Huehuetenango are often more explicitly fruit-forward than is typical of other areas of Guatemala. In this lot specifically, we're tasting white peach, green apple, and wildflower honey.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?

Yes!

First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
