More about this coffee and where it comes from….

The highlands of Guatemala produce several of the world’s finest and most distinctive coffees. Finca Nueva Granada, named after the last Arab Fortress in Europe, is a coffee farm situated in San Marcos, Guatemala. Coffee plants grow up to an altitude of c. 1500m nestled between two volcanos, Tajumulco and Tacana in volcanic ash soil.
 
San Marcos elevation at 7,868 feet (2,398 meters) has the highest rainfall pattern of the 8 coffee growing regions in Guatemala, reaching up to 200 inches. The seasonal rains come sooner than in other regions, producing earliest flowering. As in all of Guatemala’s remote regions, most coffee is cultivated on farms with their own processing mills. Because of the unpredictability of rainfall during the harvest season, much of the coffee is pre-dried in the sun and finished in a dryer.

The coffee plants start their growing cycle in March / April and harvest generally begins in October. During this period the cherries ripen under shade until they are deep red in colour. The farm workers will pass through the coffee groves more than once, only selecting ripe cherries as they go. Once harvested, the coffee goes through a de-pulping process using the farm’s own spring water plant. After grading, the coffee is then dried on patios and low heat dryers.
 
Nueva Granada is fully Rainforest Alliance certified. Further positive farm improvements such as an eco-mill (using 80% less water), waste water from the plant used as irrigation water (not returned to rivers), sustainable agriculture, health care facilities, nursery etc. are provided for the farm and its workers.
