Guatemala – SHB EP Atitlan – San Pedro La Laguna B10636
Throughout the harvest, many lots from San Pedro, Atitlan, were cupped and classified according to their quality and profile. The most representative lots were selected to form this blended lot from various smallholders in the area; we think it is the best expression of what this region can offer. The coffees here develop clean sweetness and sparkling acidity due to the combination of rich volcanic soil, good elevation, an average rainfall of about 2,000mm, and a relatively cool average temperature. Atitlan’s soil is rich with organic matter; about 90% of coffee in Atitlan is cultivated along volcanic slopes that surround Lake Atitlan. Daily winds stir the cold lake waters, influencing variations in the microclimates of the region.
