About: The land of lakes and volcanos, Guatemala has a vast range of growing regions and an equivalent range of complex cups to match. Most of the farms in Guatemala are small, from 1-10 hectares, but there are also some larger estates. The most commonly cultivated coffee varieties are Bourbon, Typica, Pache, and Catuai. Farmers have the option to process the coffee at their homes if facilities and water allow for it or they can deliver cherry to a larger mill or farmers’ cooperative.
