Notes from the Roaster

This microlot is made of small producer’s farms that lie directly above the town of Ciudad Vieja. If you drive directly up the volcano south of the 30,000 person township you will come across hundreds of small coffee plots. Ciudad Vieja’s many small producers often grow 5-20 bags of coffee throughout a harvest. Purchasing this coffee directly supports the entire production of these small farmers. The volcano supplies volcanically rich soil and amazing elevation, which provides the fruit with the perfect scenario for building sweetness and complexity.

Antigua Guatemala is a valley surrounded by three volcanoes: Agua, Fuego, and Acatenago. The Fuego Volcano is still active, and every once in a while it erupts, adding a fresh dusting of mineral rich ash to Antigua soil. This ash helps to retain the soil moisture, and contributes to the coffee development.
