The farm is located on the skirts of the Volcan de Agua near the beautiful colonial
town of Antigua. They grow mostly Bourbon and Caturra and have a bit of Catuai.
On a nearby land, they also grow the most amazing avocados.
Rich volcanic soil, low humidity, lots of sun, and cool nights characterize the
Antigua Coffee® region. This valley is surrounded by three volcanoes: Agua, Fuego,
and Acatenango. Every once in a while, Fuego—one of Guatemala’s three active
volcanoes—adds a fresh dusting of mineral-rich ash to Antigua’s soil. Volcanic
pumice in the soil retains moisture, which helps offset Antigua’s low rainfall. In
Antigua, shade is especially dense to protect the coffee plants from the region’s
occasional frost.
