The picturesque town La Antigua Guatemala is a cultural and historic attraction of the country. For more than 233 years, until the devastating earthquake in the year 1773, it has even been the capital of Guatemala. The town is surrounded by three volcanoes, the Agua, Acantenango and the Fuego, which are periodically active and still constitute a serious threat to the inhabitants of the region. The city centre, which was restored after the earthquake, has since escaped urban modernization and in 1979 was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Owing to the excellent climatic conditions and the most fertile volcanic soils, varieties of Arabica coffee like “Bourbon” and Catuai” thrive here on heights of 1.500 above sea level. Among our choice of Guatemalan coffees, the Genuine Antigua Los Volcanes and Almolonga are by far the best coffees with regards to quality. The taste profile of these coffees is, above all, complex. Time and time again, we are amazed about the variety of flavour nuances that are brought out depending on the roasting grade.
