“El Jaguar” is a special blend of some of the best coffees coming from the Suchitepéquez department, which is a southwestern region of Guatemala.
It is characterized for being a tropical department, with an exuberant jungle full of natural resources such as its flora and fauna. It has also a very fertile land,
that is ideal for growing trees.

In spite of the fact that there are no volcanoes in Suchitepéquez, a lot of volcanic material can be found, which comes from the highlands located at the northern side
of the department.
Erosion and the mountainous soils have led to an amazing fertility of the lands. Many rivers are found in this region, all of them running to the Pacific Ocean.

The population lives mainly from agriculture, which is varied due to the fertile soil and the different altitudes. It grows coffee, cane, tobacco, rubber
and various citrus fruits.

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.
