Guatemala San Isidro Chacaya
Finca San Isidro Chacaya is a family owned business; it has been producing some of the best coffees in the region for over 100 years. The farm is located in the western highlands of Guatemala, department of Sololá, right in the middle of the famous Traditional Atitlán® region. Chacayá stands between Volcan San Pedro and Lake Atitlan (also referred to as the most beautiful lake in the world!). The farm has an area of 180 has, of which, 46 areplanted with coffee and the rest is an outstanding natural reserve. Chacayá’ altitude ranges between 1.550 bordering the lake to 2.100 m.a.s.l. in the mountain.
Due to its topography, there are breathtaking views of the lake, the farm, thereserve and the three volcanoes that surround the plantation (Atitlán, San Pedro and Toliman). The farm’s production ranges around 800 – 1.500 bags of 60 kg. The quality is our most valuable asset, positively influenced by the altitude, volcanic soils, different microclimates that can be found on the farm and the good agricultural practices. The proximity to the lake, volcanoes and mountains surrounding thefarm are important factors that determine the microclimates. Our coffee is traditionally processed on the farm: handpicked, de-pulped, naturally fermented, washed and sun/shade dried.
