About the Coffee

About Francisco Cardona Martin

Francisco Cardona Martin had a plan in mind when he bought the Finca La Colmentia in 2002. Beloved by his community, Francisco invests nearly all of his profits back into his farm to ensure he produces the best quality of coffee he can! La Colmentia, or, "The Beehive", gets its name from Francisco's much-beloved bees that act as natural pollinators and serve as a secondary income for the farm, producing a naturally floral, citric honey! 


About Onyx Coffee

In 2020, Sirius Coffee Roasters was in search of creating strong connections with producers in Guatemala, a country of origin with coffees that had quickly become staff favorites. It was at this same time that we met Julio with Onyx Coffee and we have been working together ever since! 

Edwin Martinez, CEO & Owner of Onyx Coffee, is a Third-Generation Coffee Producer whose Grandfather started a coffee farm in 1957. Martinez and Onyx work incredibly hard to build relationships with the farmers of Guatemala and roasters around the world in order to become a trusted source of Guatemalan coffees. As a coffee producer himself, Martinez knows the challenges farmers face in the industry and stresses the importance of ensuring farmers receive the support they need to thrive economically, socially, and environmentally in the long term. 

Sirius Coffee Roasters and Onyx have been growing together for the last 3 years and counting, with Guatemala becoming a staple origin for our Switchback and Pressure Drop blend to ensure we can continue to make an impact for the farmers throughout the year! By working together, we hope to expand our direct relationships in Guatemala over the next few years! We think Onyx Coffee is an incredible importer and are proud to work with them!
