The name Huixoc (wee-chock), which means "water spring" in the mam dialect, was founded by Jose Olivio Chavez, a coffee exporting and marketing pioneer in 1940. There are several water springs located on the farm in the mountains of La Democracia that help provide adequate moisture during the dry season and have also provided energy to run the coffee mill over the years. For those that love their "middle of the road" coffee, this Guatemalan is a favorite of ours.
