Ericka Sanchez is the owner of 2.5 hectares of land in the San Antonio Huista area of Huehuetenango. The farm, La Montaña, is planted with Caturra, Bourbon and Pache, and sits at 1700masl. Ericka is part of the Red de Mujeres, or ‘network of women’ in English and she manages her farm using organic fertilizer which she produces onsite. Ericka doesn’t use any chemical inputs and has diversified the other crops she grows on the land to safeguard for a sustainable future. The fermentation method she uses is fairly unique and is now been passed on to other members of ACODIHUE. Ericka lets the coffee dry ferment for a longer period of time in controlled conditions in order to accentuate the fruity characteristics in the cup.
