Ring of Fire
Ring of Fire  Guatemala

This lot comes to us from the highest reaches of breathtaking Finca San Sebastian in San Miguel Dueñas, Guatemala. We call it Ring of Fire because this coffee was grown in one of the highest altitude areas in the region—making it incredibly unique. In a cup of Ring of Fire, you’ll taste the results of high-altitude growth -- a sweet lemonade-like acidity complimented by a pleasant, honeydew melon-like body and cocoa finish.

Farm to Cup Story 

No, Johnny Cash was sadly not at this farm when we sourced this coffee (#rip). And no, there wasn’t lava, either. Ring of Fire is just a fun way to talk about the coffee grown nearest the apex of the Acatenango volcano in San Miguel Duenas, Guatemala. In a cup of Ring of Fire, you’ll taste the results of high-altitude growth. You’ll notice a sweet lemonade-like acidity complimented by a pleasant, honeydew melon-like body and cocoa finish.  

 

However, the final cup isn’t just the result of proper harvest and processing—it’s a result of the terroir as well—and that includes altitude. One of the reasons why coffees grown at higher altitudes exhibit unique qualities is that it is significantly colder, which essentially slows the growth of the coffee. More precisely, colder temperatures cause the plants and cherries to mature more slowly as a result of slower cellular respiration (and therefore, there are more days in which it must go through the process of photosynthesis). This yields higher concentrations of sugars and acids, which present themselves clearly in a cup of Ring of Fire.

 

This lot is 100% Bourbon variety. Bourbon is a known as the pinot noir of coffee—exhibiting deep, complex sweetness and a luscious, yet delicate body. The bourbon plant itself is more delicate and fragile than other varieties, which makes it more risky to grow—especially considering that it has a slightly lower yield as well. But when bourbon is done right, it is well worth the risk. Ring of Fire is a great example of bourbon done right, and we’re happy to be able to share it with you. Grab a bag today and get lit.
