Guatemala

Antigua Capuchinas

washed

Our Genuine Antigua Type “Las Capuchinas” brand represents the world renown Antigua Guatemala
coffee. It’s a blend of different Antigua region coffees, where some of the world’s greatest
coffees are found.
Volcanic origin: Having three volcanos in the nearby vicinity of Antigua gives these plantations soil
of volcanic origin. It is very rich in minerals and nutrients, which gives the Antigua coffee its very
unique quality. The coffee is carefully hand picked and selected when ripe and taken to the coffee
mill located in the outskirts of Antigua.
A piece of history: Antigua Guatemala was the capital of the country, until the 1776 earthquake
left it damaged. The legend says the small city was flooded by the water that had been collecting
itself in the former crater of the “Volcán de Agua”. That’s where the name of the volcano comes
from: Water-Volkano.

Coffees from Guatemala

Guatemala’s coffee belt runs along a chain of 34 volcanoes that crosses the country from East to West and benefits the coffee production with soils rich in minerals and nutrients. The soil is mostly volcanic, limestone and pumice. Consistent rainfall and year round warm climate guarantee the crops. The coffee is mostly grown under Gravilea and Inga shade trees which make 7% of the national forest. It is always hand-picked and dried under the sun, except for the Cobán coffee, which production region is sometimes too humid.

Main production areas: San Marcos, Huehuetenango, Atitlán, Acatenango, Antigua, Cobán, Fraijanes, Oriente.

Cup Profile: A fragrant, full bodied coffee with pleasant citrus acidity. Depending on the region the coffee can vary from intense acidity and fruit notes to delicate sweetness and chocolatey.

Export bag size: 69 kg, specialties in 30 kg bags

Total number of coffee farmers: over 125.000 coffee farmers
