Sacatepéquez is a department of Central Guatemala. It is largely mountainous and hosts a chain of active & dormant volcanoes including Acatenago, Volcan De Agua, and Volcan de Fuego. The volcanic soil and high altitudes make for ideal coffee growing conditions.
This coffee is sourced from Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora and his farm Hacienda Carmona in Antigua, Sacatepéquez. He has four generations of Guatemalan coffee culture pulsing through his veins and an Agribusiness degree from the renowned University of Zamorano. His stellar professional reputation for producing world-class coffees is drawn from his ability to implement precise farm management and post-harvest processing decisions.
The resulting cup reminds us of hazelnut, orange, and vanilla.
