Sierra de las Minas is one of Guatemala's largest mountain ranges. This coffee is cultivated by a small collection of estate holders in El Progesso on the Las Minas range. After harvest and processing the coffee is handled by Josue Morales at Los Volcanoes Coffee in Antigua. Greenway has worked with Josue Morales, founder of LVC, for eight years and counting.
Josue’s approach to coffee production involves centering the supply chain and educational system around the growing communities of Guatemala. These onsite classes focus on biodynamic farming practices, natural methods of insect and fungal control, as well as extensive farm management systems.
This coffee has incredibly complex but classic flavors of this region. Look for peanut butter and vanilla wafer.
