Farm to Cup Story
Guatemala’s tropical climate is ideal for growing delicious, full-bodied coffee. That’s why we’ve chosen to bring you a Guatemalan coffee that’s medium roasted to sweet perfection. Unlike it’s dark-roasted counterpart 3 Volcanoes, Snowmageddon is sweet and rounded out by a full-bodied mouth-feel. In the cup, you’ll taste the sweetness of hot cocoa paired with cashew and mellow citrus undertones—flavor notes that are sure to please your taste buds and keep you coming back for more as refuge from the bitter cold of winter.
While we experience winter from December-March, Guatemala experiences its dry summer during this same time. So, while we shiver in the cold, the beans we love to drink flourish in the warmth. And, unlike some of their heirloom relatives, many of the varieties of coffee that are commonly grown here (such as Bourbon, Catuai, and Caturra) are known for their hardiness and versatility.
Located in the scenic Sacatepéquez region, this coffee comes from various farmers located in gorgeous Antigua, Guatemala. Here, local farmers grow, harvest and sort their coffee. The farmers then visit the San Miguel mill where the coffee is processed using a washed process. This method ensures clean, crisp flavors without running too high of a risk of acquiring too much flavor from fermentation.
