Guatemala Antigua Coffee has a deep-rooted history with Guatemala, and no region is more emblematic of coffee’s heritage, quality, and wide range of flavor profiles than the Antigua region of Guatemala. With growing altitudes of 1,500-1,700 meters, Antigua is located in southern Guatemala and is renowned for its Spanish architecture, natural beauty, and, of course, coffee. With a daily rainfall that can total anywhere between 800mm-1200mm by the end of the wet season, the area easily creates a refreshing setting for the cultivation of coffee beans.
Antigua was also blessed with a naturally diverse terrain that maintains its dense rainforest, which provides vital humidity to the nearby farms of Antigua. Guatemala Antigua Coffees are unique in that they are grown in a region with a valley of three different volcanoes that provide interesting soil conditions that provide great quantities of minerals and nutrients for the coffee plant that lend themselves to the rich flavors brought out in Guatemala Antigua coffees. The Guatemala Antigua Coffee is typically harvested between January to the end of March within the region.
