“Farms of Antigua” is a flagship coffee program created by Los Volcanes coffee to showcase what they consider to be a “true” terroir of the entire Antigua valley—something that in their experience can only be achieved by blending different producers together. Therefore, it is hundreds of producers that make this coffee possible, and together, their coffee is incredible.
The city of Antigua is in many ways a modern coffee Eden. Itʼs iconic, laid back, and gorgeously ornate, and for a city of its size it is absolutely teeming with historic coffee infrastructure. Coffees from most of the Sacatepéquez Department is known simply as “Antigua”, and their sugar profiles range from butterscotch to marzipan sweetness, and acids from lemonade-like piquancy to dessert wine or tangy dried fruit. Guatemala's best centralized wet mills and boutique exporters are based in Antigua. There are hundreds of farms in the area, from the cityʼs legacy estates to patchwork smallholder communities climbing most of the way up Volcán de Agua, one of three looming stratovolcanoes that seem to be visible from every street corner in town and play a large part in Antiguaʼs famous soil composition. Such a variety of producers begets coffees with endless combinations of microclimates, elevations and varieties. There is a lot to work with here, and a lot of talent.

When I picked it up. I also got a tour. Was educated where they source beans directly from the farmers. The blend is delicious and tasted the notes while smooth.
I don't drink coffee often, but this might convert me. This is the perfect daily cup. Super smooth.
