San Pedro La Laguna is a Guatemalan town on the southwest shore of Lake Atitlán. It is a beautiful area that has a great landscape for producing even greater coffee. Atitlán’s soil is the richest in organic matter. 90% of traditional Atitlán is cultivated along the slopes of the intense volcanoes that overlook the shores of Lake Atitlán. The coffee is harvested mostly on the Pacific side of the region around three volcanic mountains with a high precipitation. In this region, every month of the year will have at least 50 mm of rain. Most producers in this region will use water from the lake for the wet processing. Coffees from around Lake Atitlán are a classic Guatemalan cup. Atitlán coffee has a deep body, stunning acidity and fruit, and hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Also this coffee is an SHB EP which is the highest grade a Guatemalan can receive.
