Guatemalan coffee is arguably the crown jewel of Central Americas coffee growing region. That doesn't mean all Guatemalan coffees are good, but it does mean that the potential on the upside, the possibility of 88+ point coffees, is greater from regions in Guatemala than its neighboring countries. Great Guatemalan coffees have a bright cup character, floral hints, clean fruited notes, moderate body, and a lingering clean aftertaste. With varying qualities, farms ranging from huge estates to tiny small-holders perched on steep slopes, and different cup characteristics from within the same micro-regions, there is much to learn to appreciate the complexity of Guatemala coffee and its tasting profile.

There are diverse growing regions within Guatemala that have the altitude, soil and climate conditions to produce great coffee. Antigua is home to some of the older estates in Latin American coffee, some handed down from original land grants within the same family.

The Antigua region is the best known Guatemalan region by far and renowned for its very sweet taste. The micro-climate is greatly influenced by the proximity of 3 volcanoes, of which the active Fuego provides the plants regularly with free fertilizer. After an eruption, mineral-rich sediments are deposited on the plantations.

The Huehuetenango region Located in the remote northern Highlands, this is a coffee that stands out specifically because of its fruity overtones and its taste, reminiscent of wine. Its remote location makes the coffee producers self-reliant regarding the processing of their crops. Due to the many rivers that flow through the area, there is no lack of water, making it relatively easy to set up processing plants.

The Atitlan region, Those who love coffees with a fresh citric aroma and full body should certainly try an Atitlán coffee. The coffee's specific character is once again the result of a special micro-climate. Approximately 90% of coffees from this area grows on the slopes of the volcanoes around Lake Atitlán. The prevailing winds (Xocomil) are cooled down by the lake's water and have a strong influence on the micro-climate.
