This coffee gets its name from the Acatenango volcano located next to Volcán de Fuego, which translates to “fire volcano.” Since it’s currently active, tall ash plumes can be seen billowing over the skyline while intense lava fountains spew closer to the earth. Minerals, sand and ash from the explosive natural phenomena nourish the nearby soil after being carried by the Pacific Ocean breeze. And when combined with cool temperatures, these ideal conditions produce an unparalleled taste in the cup.
At first sip, notes of cocoa come through, and delicate nuances emerge as the coffee cools. With such a distinctive profile, this region’s coffee continues to gain recognition for the wonderfully rare flavor complexities that set it apart.
