What Makes Coffee from Antigua Guatemala So Incredible

What makes Guatemalan Coffee So Incredible by Rudy Giron

Volcanic soil, the perfect amount rain and sunshine and shadow, temperate weather, 5,000 to 6,500 feet altitude above sea level and to start with the best possible coffee berries. That’s all, give or take.

Any other suggestions or things that I might have overlooked?

    • Hi NYChapin, what can I say, when you are right, you are right.

    Solo falta una palabra mas … ‘Fernando’, de ‘Fernando’s Caffe’, ja-ja-ja !

    • Okay Eric, you need updating since a couple of years ago. Now the name is Christian and the coffee shop is Tretto, a fine Guatemalan barista who is passionate about each cup of coffee he prepares and serves the best coffee from the most exclusive fincas in Guatemala, mostly export only coffee quality.

        I saw your previous post about Tretto. Unfortunately, I barely had time to sleep in La Antigua on this past visit … although I found time for some ‘Ron y ciruela’ ice cream with cinnamon at Dona Gavi’s. My next nirvana-like experience with coffee will have to wait until next time !
