Finca El Triunfo’s Family History:
One of the oldest farms in Guatemala, Finca El Triunfo, has been owned by the Padilla family since 1871. In those days the process of coffee growing was slow and inefficient. It was not until 1920 that they began exporting their coffee to North America and Germany.
It was in 1929 at the “Feria Hispanoamericana de Sevilla” (Hispanoamerican fair at Seville, Spain) when Finca El Triunfo was, for the first time, rewarded for its magnificient coffee obtaining 1st place for oustanding SHB quality. In 1955 Finca El Triunfo obtained an award for its outstanding wet mill processing(which included the harvesting, de-pulping, fermenting, washing, and drying processes), from the “Oficina Nacional del Café de Guatemala” (later to become Anacafe).
Finca El Triunfo has continued to prove its commitment to quality throughout the years. In 2002 Illy Cafe awarded the farm the 2nd place for best Guatemalan SHB. Most recently, in 2008 Anacafe (National Coffee Association of Guatemala) awarded Mr. Gregorio M. Padilla, the current owner of Finca El Triunfo, with the the highest honor, the “Flor del Café” award. The award was extended to Finca El Triunfo for its support in the development of national coffee culture and specifically for producing some of the finest coffees the country, being an active member of the asociation and an outstanding ambassafor for Guatemalan coffees. Finca El Triunfo has exported its coffees for over 70 years to many countries including: Germany, The United States, Italy, The United Kingdom, Spain, Japan, Israel, and many others.
