The Antigua coffee region is one of the better known in Guatemala thanks to both the quality and quantity the region puts out. Nestled in the valley of 3 volcanos, it sits over 1,500 meters above sea level and has ideal coffee growing conditions - rich soils, ample rain and sun and relatively consistent temperatures. The climate makes for not only a robust growing environment for the coffee, but also a beautiful, paradise-like vacationing destination.
Guatemala Antigua coffees are Strictly Hard Bean coffees grown at elevations from 4,600 feet to 5,600 feet where the temperatures range from 66 to 71 degrees Fahrenheit (19 to 22 Celsius). The rainfall in this region is usually between 800 mm and 1,200 mm each year with a humidity that stays relatively constant at around 65%.
Distinct dry seasons and wet seasons provide for a consistent climate that leads to a uniformity of maturation among the coffee plants, with green coffee harvesting typically occurring from January to the middle of March.
Generally considered to be the finest premium coffee grown in Guatemala, Antigua is known to exhibit the typical Guatemalan coffee qualities which include a full body (heavier than the typical Central American coffee) and spicy flavor that is often very rich, even velvety.
