This is the story of coffee; the humble beginnings of that magical elixir and how its future may be in jeopardy. Follow in the footsteps of high altitude coffee farmers on the slopes of the Volcano Acatenango in Guatemala; exploring the dedication and love invested into the soil, as well as the challenges faced by their families. The coffee farms have been passed from generation to generation, with over 100 years of cultivating the same soil, but the next generation may decide to walk away.



The little town of Yepocapa sits below the Volcanoes Acatenango and Fuego in the mountains of central Guatemala. The volcanic soil, high altitude, and moderate climate make for nutrient and flavor rich coffees. The same volcanoes that provide the area with constantly refreshed soil also make growing less hardy plants all but impossible.
