Farm to Cup Story
At Stone Creek Coffee, we care about flavor quality just as much as we care about sourcing and sustainability. So when we found 3 Volcanoes Dark Guatemala, it felt like we hit the jackpot. It’s delicious, sourced responsibly, and sustainable. We’ve chosen to dark roast this Guatemalan coffee until it’s sweet and is rounded out by Guatemala’s signature full-bodied mouthfeel; a sure hit for dark roast devotees and apprehensive drinkers alike. In the cup, you’ll taste the sweetness of dark chocolate with nut and citrus undertones.
Guatemala’s tropical climate and fertile soil is ideal for growing delicious, full-bodied coffees. And, unlike some of their heirloom relatives, many of the varieties of coffee that are commonly grown in Guatemala (such as Bourbon, Catuai, and Caturra) are known for their hardiness and versatility.
3 Volcanoes Dark Guatemala is sourced from a family owned estate located in the municipality of San Pedro Necta within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Finca El Limonar is owned and operated by Hugo Chávez Mendez, a third-generation coffee producer, who continues the traditions passed down from his grandfather, Jose Olivia Chávez, who established the estate in the 1940’s. The abundance of spring water on the estate provides year around hydropower for the mill operations and pristine water for processing coffee.
