Finca El Pilar is located in the high mountains of San Juan Sacatepequez, Guatemala, just a couple hours driving from the city.Juan Carlos Chen, a Certified Public Accountant, was introduced to the coffee business several years ago, when his father-in-law, who acquired the farm in 1982, entrusted it him in 2012.
El Pilar is one of very few farms that still preserves old plantations and it is common to find 70+ year old Typicas and Bourbons still producing.
