This coffee is grown in the Antigua region, Guatemala’s oldest and best- known coffee growing region. The region is surround by three volcanoes: the “Agua”, “Acatenango” and the “Fuego”.

Its climate is ideal for growing coffee with a dry season that goes from November through April, and a rainy season that goes from May through October. The coffee is processed using the wet method and dried out on patios or in drums using parchment or wood as fuel. The coffee beans are hand sorted.

The coffee uses banana trees as a form of shade growing.
