This Genuine Antigua Los Volcanes is a brand that represents the world renonwned Antigua coffee region and has been a standard in the industry since 1952. This coffee encompasses the best coffee beans from farms & small producers in the whole of the Antigua region, including the area of Ciudad Vieja and the volcanic valley. The soil here in this region is rich in minerals, nutrients and sediments which are ideal for growing unique and outstanding coffee.
All of the coffee plants are shade grown under gravillea trees and carefully hand-picked and selected. The milling and drying processes are strict and careful in order to meet high client demands and to ensure consistent quality. As you well know, "consistent quality" is not always something you can count on when it comes to green coffee!
How does it taste? This coffee has the classic Guatemala rich body with the a bit more brightness than you would expect from the neighboring region of Huehuetenango. It boasts a velvety chocolate body and notes of sweet caramel and orange with a crisp, clean finish. Wonderful for a first cup of the day - or second, or third!
