Relive the origin
Most of the farmers in Guatemala collaborate with Anacafé (Asociación Nacional del Café), a Guatemalan association founded in 1960 that helps farmers from an economic point of view but above all from an agricultural point of view.
Anacafé defined the eight producing regions (Acatenango, Antigua, Atitlán, Cobán, Fraijanes, Huehuetenango, Nuevo Oriente, San Marcos) with the slogan “A rainbow of choices”, a phrase that binds us directly having common values such as respect for people and for nature.
The high altitudes, constant rainfall and mineral-rich soils offer coffee plants excellent conditions to produce unique coffees.
The district of Antigua is surrounded by three volcanoes: Agua, Fuego and Acatenango, from time to time Fuego awakens by depositing a layer of ash rich in minerals and nutrients for the soil of the plantations.
The cherries are harvested manually between the months of April and August, then they are put in water to select the ripe and unripe ones, finally the cherries are stripped in water for washing and dried, at the end the beans are packaged in 69 grainpro bags kg.
