This coffee comes from the Santa Rosa region of Guatemala, near Laguna de Ayarza. Laguna Ayarza, or Laguna Azul as it is referred to locally, is a crater lake that formed approximately 20,000 years ago by volcanic eruption. The lake has long been surrounded by legend, with many believing it is connected to the ocean and many lives being lost in attempt to dive down to its floor. It is a mysterious, pristine lake, in a volcanic remote part of Guatemala.
The volcanic soil of this region provides an extremely nutrient rich environment for coffee farming. The bright, juicy notes of this coffee are characteristic of coffees grown in volcanic soil.
