HARVEST

August - March

Coffee production began to develop in the 1850s and has only progressed from strength to strength. The favourable and complex micro-climates across the country has given opportunity to farmers and enabled them to produce fantastically varied coffees within a small geography.

Guatemala has preserved more of the traditional Typica and Bourbon varieties of Arabica than most other Latin American growing countries; this is generally seen as the reason for the heightened complexity and quality of Guatemalan coffees.

Antigua is internationally renowned for its high-quality coffees.  This region is located between three volcanoes in a valley with a climate perfect for cultivating coffee.  The soils are young and optimal for coffee.  The wet and dry seasons are defined for uniform maturation.  The temperature ranges from 19-22 C and the altitude is between 1400 and 1600 MASL.  Annual rainfall is between 800-1,200 mm and the humidity is constant at 65%.

 Cofi-Com’s Guatemalan coffees range from the Organic, RFA, Bird Friendly HB Finca Ceylan to the popular SHB Huehuetenango, a great blend addition for dark chocolate/floral notes.
