We are your connection to the tropics
A lifetime of inspiration
I grew up at a coffee farm in the beautiful volcanoes of Atitlan, Guatemala. After arriving in the US for the first time, in my luggage, I packed my “personal bag” filled with coffee and honey from the farm. I shared it with friends and I was surprised by their reaction. Immediately I knew I needed to create a market that would let me share all the special products the green and fertile land of the tropics had to offer.
We skip intermediaries and import our products directly from the producers.
Our company is based in Texas where we store and roast our coffee. Currently, we import the green coffee beans directly from our family-owned farm in Guatemala called Finca Santo Tomas Perdido. The green coffee is stored in a warehouse in Houston, where it is shipped to roasters. Biarte’s journey has just started and we are excited for what’s to come!
Empowering our growers and communities
Having lived and grown up at a coffee farm, I recognized the importance to support the local communities and create a positive impact. I witnessed how the farm was a sustainable economic motor for the region and a leader in sustainable practices. My experience turned on my desire to give back and I made sure this principle is transferred to the core values at Biarte.
We look to provide you with the best specialty products with transparency and sustainability end to end.

Atitlan, Guatemala has the reputation of having some of the best coffees in the world, but they also have beautiful and special crafts from local artisans. Atitlan has outstanding artisans that create crafts of great quality. We will look to partner with local artisans to support their art.
