This coffee was cultivated near Lake Atitlan in Guatemala's highlands. The lake is shaped by deep escarpments which surround it and by three volcanoes on its southern flank. The lake basin is volcanic in origin, filling an enormous caldera formed in an eruption 84,000 years ago. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. This lot came from Cerro Lancandon Chochajau, a farm operation that cultivates over 33 hectares with 27 producers contributing to the farm.
This fully washed coffee was fermented in tanks for 36 hours and washed 3 times then sun dried over black plastic sheets.
