The School at San Sebastian Estate Project
There are few places more suited to coffee production than the Antigua Valley of Guatemala, 5,000 feet high, tucked among three massive volcanos. There are even fewer places on the highest slopes of those volcanoes, reaching above 7,000 feet, where the slower growth of coffee plants yields superbly rich flavor. And it all comes together at Finca San Sebastián.
Peet’s has worked with Finca San Sebastian for over 50 years, a relationship that goes back generations. We call that “family,” and it is an honor to support the children of Finca San Sebastian’s workforce and those of the nearby community of San Miguel Dueñas.
The School at San Sebastián offers courses covering everything from literacy and ethics to music and technology to physical education—plus hot breakfast for all. Students receive this education tuition-free thanks to contributions made by Peet’s and the farm.
Watching the children thrive alongside this beautiful coffee brings to life a core tenet of Peet’s: “Coffee can be a powerful means of doing good”.
