Los Volcanoes - Single Origin

Cupping Notes: Smooth, fruit and nut notes, chocolate overtones, syrup mouthfeel


The Antigua valley is one of Guatemala’s oldest and best-known coffee growing regions. The valley’s volcanoes and shallow water table create a dry micro-climate with low humidity, lots of sun and long, cool nights. The coffee region of Antigua is an enclosed valley formed by three volcanoes ? the Agua, Acatenango and Fuego. With a flat or gently sloping terrain, it is unlike the other, more rugged coffee growing regions of Guatemala. Most of the coffee trees are planted on the valley floor, which is at 1,500 metres ASL, and some farmers cultivate the slopes of the volcanoes up to 1,700 metres ASL. Los Volcanes are a collection of small farms 40km away from the main city of Antigua. This year’s harvest leapt to our attention with its consistent cup quality and cleanliness in processing.

This is a complex Antigua, produced in rich volcanic soils and with near-perfect temperate climate. This microclimate produces a coffee with crisp sparkling acidity and full body, with intense flavour characteristics. Blend with this bean for a superior coffee or roast medium-to-dark for single origin use. In the cup it shows as highly fragrant with bitter chocolate and spices
