Around 1830 an American Pioneer, William Nelson, traveled to Guatemala and arrived at the side of a hillock that the local Mayan Indians called "Pecul," near the small village of San Francisco Zapotitlan. Since time immemorial the luxuriant and pristine vegetation of "Pecul" has provided shelter to the exotic quetzal, Guatemala's national bird. Besides the awesome scenery, Nelson found optimal natural conditions to grow coffee. As a result, a coffee plantation was founded. It was named "Las Nubes" a Spanish name which means "The Clouds". The adventurer Eadweard J. Muybridge left a remarkable visual testimony of Las Nubes beginnings, through a series of photographs taken in 1875.

Since 1840, "Las Nubes" has been home to the best and most exclusive coffee of Guatemala. Both Las Nubes "Muybridge" and Genuine "Las Nubes" are unique and wonderful estate Strictly Hard Bean coffees. "Muybridge" a blend of beans grown from 3,500 to 4,500 hundred feet, delivers a cup with a wonderful floral aroma, good body, excellent acidity, and a sweet citrus aftertaste. Genuine "Las Nubes" is a unique, invigorating, and original estate coffee, fully sun dried and born from original Bourbon and Typical trees between 4,500 and 6,000 feet above sea level.

Both coffees are sown, nurtured, and harvested with love - the love of each and every one of the 1,000 dedicated people who work at the plantation. These men and women live at Las Nubes under the best working and social conditions. Furthermore, Genuine SHB Las Nubes coffee is grown in accordance with strict quality standards. These standards guarantee a first-class and limited production of this splendid coffee. Such are the conditions and environment in which Genuine SHB Las Nubes is cultivated; the choice of connoisseurs and the most demanding people. Some call Las Nubes the Rothschild of Coffees.
