The Fraijanes Plateau is one of Guatemala's 8 coffee growing regions and is located in the South West of the Guatemala Department. Its main characteristic is the rich volcanic soil. The region is home to the Pacaya Volcano, one of Guatemala's most active volcanoes, covering farms with small amounts of ash every day. The region also receives plenty of rain (60 to 120 inches), and has lots of sun during the year. Making it a great place for coffee growing. Average temperatures range from 15 to 26 degrees Celsius and the drying season is marked by plenty of sunlight to help sundry the coffees.

This blend has a great body and chocolate notes that excel as an espresso blend. 

The process

With 125 years of coffee farming experience, the Falla family is one of the oldest coffee farming families in Antigua. The story of San Miguel- Single Origin Coffees begins more than 50 years ago when Arturo Falla Cofiño embarked on a new adventure when he purchased the farm El Tempixque. El Tempixque is located just a short drive from Antigua, a world heritage site, in the village of San Miguel Dueñas. The farm is nestled amongst three majestic and active volcanoes, Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. The coffees from San Miguel are as unique as the location itself. In addition to coffee, El Tempixque produced another of El Canche’s loves: ornamental plants. The farm is home to a beautiful nursery of poinsettias and orchids. El Tempixque’s orchids have given rise to new and unique varieties and have received awards on numerous occasions. “El Canche” (The Blond) farmed coffee and orchids at El Tempixque for 30 years until he passed away. At that time, his son, Estuardo Falla, faced a crossro

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
