This is a "Regional Select" coffee, which is a regional blend created to highlight the unique profiles of a particular region and microclimate. Local variables like wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influences have much to do with the common characteristics that separate, say, a Northern Colombian from a Southern Colombian coffee, just as they inform the differences between a Colombian and a Kenyan.
These lots are built as blends from coffees that cup out between 84–87 on our 100-point cupping scale, and come with regional and often microregional traceability, but are not farm or producer-specific.
Acatenango benefits from rich volcanic soils and a very traditional coffee culture that has carried its regional profile consistently through the generations. Farmers here almost exclusively grow their coffee under a cover of shade.
