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 tress from the region's occasional frost.
Roasting Type: Medium-Dark - Rich, darker color with some oil on the surface. Bittersweet aftertaste. Flavor and aroma emerge and acidity disappears completely.
Yield: 12 oz bag of whole beans or ground coffee gives 62 cups of 9 oz approximately.
