Organic Chochajau, Atitlan, Guatemala:
Often a blend of two or more beans, occasionally we find a coffee which perfectly embodies the character of El Capitan all by itself.
This organic coffee was cultivated near Lake Atitlan in Guatemala's highlands, bordered by three volcanoes on its southern flank. The lake basin is volcanic in origin, filling an enormous caldera formed in an eruption 84,000 years ago. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. This lot came from Cerro Lancandon Chochajau, a farm operation that cultivates over 33 hectares with 27 producers contributing to the farm.
