Your Connection to the Tropics

Our Story

Feel the Tropics

Biarte was inspired by the green
mountains of the Guatemalan
tropics. We are a "roots to markets"
business where we offer our
customers a variety of natural specialty
products that are sourced directly
from the producers.

A lifetime of inspiration

Carlos, Biarte's founder, grew up at a coffee farm on the beautiful volcanoes of Atitlan, Guatemala. During his first trip to the US, he packed the products from the farm to take a piece from home with him. He shared the food with his friends and they liked it so much that every trip back home he would have to bring more.

From Roots

Biarte is based in Austin, Texas, where we receive and ship our specialty products. We import directly from the family-owned farm, Finca Santo Tomas Perdido, and other partnered local Guatemalan farms. Biarte’s journey has just started and we are excited for what’s to come!
