Guatemala Atitlan San Pedro – 10 oz
San Pedro La Laguna is one of 11 villages surrounding Lake Atitlan in Southern Guatemala.
Throughout the harvest, many lots from small-holders in San Pedro, Atitlan, were cupped and classified according to their quality and profile by the exporter. The most representative lots were
selected to form this blended lot from various smallholders in the area. This is an excellent example of terroir for Atitlan. The coffees here develop clean sweetness and sparkling
acidity due to the combination of rich volcanic soil, good elevation, an average rainfall of about 2,000 mm, and relatively cool average temperatures.
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.
Cupping Notes: Toffee and fresh citrus fruit with mellow almond flavors. Tart acidity and fruit-like sweetness.
