Ring of Fire
Ring of Fire  Guatemala

This lot comes to us from the highest reaches of breathtaking Finca San Sebastián in San Miguel Dueñas, Guatemala. We call it Ring of Fire because sitting at around 2000 masl, 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. You’ll notice 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 Dueñas, Guatemala. In a cup of Ring of Fire Guatemala, 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. Higher altitudes (aka colder temperatures) cause the plants and cherries to mature more slowly. This yields higher concentrations of sugars and acids, which present themselves clearly in a cup of Ring of Fire Guatemala.

 

This lot is 100% Bourbon, 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—but when done right, it is well worth the risk. Ring of Fire Guatemala is a great example of Bourbon done right, and we’re happy to be able to share it with you.
