The many volcanoes and valleys surrounding the beautiful city of Antigua provide excellent growing conditions for coffee. Ideal altitudes, temperate climates, rich volcanic soils create sweet profiles with crisp citric acidity, creamy body, lots of deep chocolate, and a zippy clean finish. Volcán comes from smallholder farms in Antigua, the Acatenango Valley to the west, and San Martin Jilotepeque to the north.
Producers cultivate their coffees in the shadow of these volcanoes, or the "Sombra Del Volcán". A few of the contributing farms include Finca La Bendición, Finca La Esperanza, Finca San Antonio.
