Guatemala Alotenango Guacatepeque

Guatemala Alotenango Guacatepeque

 

Guacatepeque is an ancient local name for the area  this coffee comes from, a group of small coffee producers in the Alotenango area. The farms are on the rising slopes of the Volcan de Fuego, which has been moderately active in the past few months. The soil in the area is unique, and contains quite a lot of sand and ash from Fuego. Producers must  take care to balance  this with organic materials to keep the coffee trees in production. Much of the area is forest  preserve, which protects the water supply, as well as providing the much needed organic soil inputs.
