Direct Trade, Direct Impact

Café Juan Ana was founded in 1992 by Fr. Greg Schaffer in response to challenges faced by coffee growers in San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala. Fair pay was oftentimes inaccessible, and in some cases, growers received less than half of the market value for their crop. To address this, CaféJuan Ana’s direct trade model was established to pay growers above-market rates for their highest quality, 100% arabica coffee. Access to a predictable income strengthens communities through economic opportunity. By choosing Juan Ana, you are supporting the health, education, and livelihood of Guatemalan growers and their families. Every purchase makes a difference!

Coffee Team, Espresso El Caminante delivers a rich body and
delicious flavor. Cappuccino and latte lovers alike will enjoy the
creamy richness Espresso El Caminante adds to their beverages.

Father Greg’s historical walk from Minnesota to Guatemala

reading pleasure!

Learn more about our Coffee!

Café Juan Ana is produced, roasted, and packaged in San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala. The area’s microclimate, altitude of 5,000-7,000 feet, and soil rich with volcanic ash makes for exceptional growing conditions, leading to exceptional, shade-grown, 100% Arabica coffee.

We offer three roasts, ranging from medium to dark. Our expert team roasts the Regular just past the first “crack” for a smooth, nutty, chocolatey flavor. The Especial is our newest roast, and is a tasty medium-dark option. The Dark is roasted just past the “second crack” for a deep flavor. Our coffee is available in single-serve cups, whole bean, or ground. We also sell green coffee (oro) to roasters!
