Acatenango Valley Specialty Coffee: Is a complex coffee with a full body and long-lasting aftertaste.
Acatenango Valley is located in southern Guatemala on the slopes of Volcan Fuego. The coffee here is grown under the dense shade at altitudes up to 6,500 feet or 2,000 meters above sea level, known for housing many local and migratory birds.
Eruptions from the nearby Fuego Volcano produce a mineral-rich soil, and temperate gusts from the Pacific Ocean ensure healthy coffee plants and marked seasons allow coffee to be sun-dried which allows the coffee to develop stunning characteristics in the cup, including a balanced body and clean, lingering finish.
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.
