Finca La Guadalupe is located on a village called Santa Maria de Jesús which is on the Agua Volcano in Antigua Guatemala. It faces the east so it receives the first hours of sunlight in the day, and its later shadowed by the shade of the massive volcano. The lack of sunlight during the afternoon is compensated with the influence of the warm winds coming off the Pacific as the tide turns, creating a unique micro climate that is temperate, cool, and perfect for slow cherry maturation. Coffee is picked and later processed by TG-LAB at Beneficio La Esperanza in Antigua.
