Entre Volcanes is a special project that started in 1990 and focused on supporting local small specialty coffee growers in Guatemala. The programme includes about 500 small producers and was developed by the Falla Family. It is now, collaboratively, managed and supported by the San Miguel Mill in Antigua, Guatemala.
The Falla family and San Miguel company decided to support small producers from the very beginning onwards, as they also have a coffee producer background. This means that they know the challenges Guatemalan coffee producers are facing in day-to-day life.
The coffee from Entre Volcanes includes two varieties, namely Bourbon and Caturra. The coffee plants grow under the shade of Grevillea trees at an altitude between 1,500 and 1,700m, and the cherries are picked from November until April.
After the producers bring the cherries to the San Miguel Mill, they are processed on-site. The process includes washing and fermentation for about 18 hours. Then the coffee is dried on patios and through mechanical dryers. The final product is wonderful coffee beans that are rated medium in acidity, sweetness, and body. The taste notes are best described as chocolate-y and caramelly with a hint of stone fruits.
