The Mayans are alive and well and their descendants nestled themselves among the volcanic hills surrounding Lake Atitlán. Sometime during the 18th century coffee was introduced to this region. On the fecund slopes of San Pedro volcano (or the Mayan Face) the descendants of that mysteriously collapsed empire harvest new riches, Guatemalan red gold. Deep in body, with acid tangs and a fruity palate with a whisper of caramel pecan and lemongrass, Guatemalan coffee beans rank among the world's best. These Atitlan San Pedro coffee beans, harvested from this region’s most outstanding micro lot, are the best of the best.
