City Guatemala Antiqua – Roast Date 6/13/2017 [Online Sale Price $13.75 / lb]

The various regions of Guatemala have preserved their individuality mainly due to several microclimates. The coffee plantations range from 1,600–16,000 ft. above sea level. On lands at elevations 1,600–2,300 ft. above sea level, young coffee plants here must be shaded. In areas averaging an altitude of 4,900 ft., the plantations must be sheltered from the cold north winds. Guatemala has preserved many of the traditional typica & bourbon arabica varieties. Most of the country’s coffee is shade grown.

The beautiful colonial city of Antiqua within Guatemala is located between two volcanoes and is blessed with rich volcanic soil. The Antiqua coffee plants are grown on a plateau called Fraijanis at the far end near Lake Amatitlan. A dense rain forest called Coban provides humidity to the plantation. The Antiqua elements combine to produce what most consider the finest coffee from Guatemala for over 100 years.

Sustaining Elements of Coffee’s selected coffee beans are sourced from the Genuine Antiqua Coffee Growers Association (APCA) co-operative farms which values corporate social responsibility. Caturra, aribigo & bourbon arabica varieties are found here. These beans have been medium roasted. You may find a slightly bold and complex flavor with chocolately and spicy undertones.
