Guatemalan Coffee Profile and History
Guatemala is the second-largest Coffee-producing nation in Central America, which it has grown for many hundreds of years. It first arrived in the country through Spanish colonisation during the 17th century.
However, it wasn’t until the 1800s that it became a commercially successful export crop. The reason for this sudden change in the industry is twofold.
The first factor involved a series of political movements beginning with Guatemala’s independence from Spain in 1821. It was initially part of the First Mexican Empire until 1824, whereby it was incorporated into the Federal Republic of Central America.
Finally, in 1841, the nation became fully independent and autonomous, which coincided with the second factor: the collapse of the local indigo industry.
Guatemalan Coffee Beans Become Popular
By 1859, having filled the void left by indigo, over a half million Coffee plants flourished in the regions of Antigua, Coban, Fraijanes and San Marcos. Production increased further when Justo Rufino Barrios (1835-1885) became president and dictator, seizing land and reserving it for Coffee farming.
More dictators, coups, civil wars and economic struggles saw Coffee sales fluctuate over the next century.
