Fraijanes Palo Alto Azul is sourced from Finca Agua Tibia, a farm managed by Industrias Agrícolas Centro Americanas. Finca Agua Tibia is located in the municipality of Fraijanes within the department of Guatemala, Guatemala. Finca Agua Tibia was established more than 150 years ago by Franciscan monks and has been producing coffee since 1940. Coffee processing continues to be steeped in tradition and has not been modernized. Seventy-five percent of Finca Agua Tibia is preserved forest. There is also an ornamental nursery, other crops and an award-winning dairy farm.
