Guatemala is known for its dazzling topography which makes up the Sierra Madre Mountain range that runs through the country, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. The producers that grow Volcanes are small-scale coffee growers, located on the slopes of the volcanoes and nearby areas. These soils are known as “Andosols” and are excellent for plant root development, water retention, and resistance to drought. These producers over time have managed to take advantage of the volcanic material found in the soil to produce high quality coffee and nutritious vegetables, creating a balance that benefits their family economy and provides additional sources of income. This coffee has a balanced acidity and a full body.
