Coffee from Antigua Los Volcanes, Guatemala:

Coffee from the Antigua Los Volcanes region in Guatemala is renowned for its exceptional quality and distinct flavour profile. Antigua is located in the central highlands of Guatemala, surrounded by three impressive volcanoes: Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango. This region's unique microclimate, rich volcanic soil, and altitude contribute to the development of coffee beans with exquisite characteristics.

The coffee produced in Antigua Los Volcanes is typically shade-grown under a canopy of trees, which helps to slow down the ripening process of the coffee cherries and allows them to develop more complex flavours. Additionally, the altitude at which the coffee is grown, often between 1,500 and 1,800 meters above sea level, contributes to the beans' density and flavour concentration.

One of the key characteristics of Antigua coffee is its vibrant acidity, which is often described as bright and crisp. This acidity is balanced by a medium to full body, with rich chocolate and caramel notes, as well as floral and fruity undertones. The coffee is known for its clean, smooth finish and lingering sweetness.

Coffee from Antigua Los Volcanes is typically processed using traditional methods, such as washed or wet processing, which involves removing the cherry pulp from the beans before drying them. This meticulous processing helps to preserve the beans' natural flavours and aromas.

Antigua Los Volcanes coffee is highly sought after by coffee enthusiasts worldwide for its complexity, balance, and exceptional quality. It has earned a reputation as one of the finest coffees produced in Guatemala, and it continues to be a favourite among connoisseurs and specialty coffee aficionados.
