ShoreTrips says...

Here in remote Guatemala grow the very beans that start your day back home.

Guatemalan coffee is arguably the crown jewel of Central America. And coffee from Guatemala, with the fertile soil and perfect climate, offers the perfect balance of full bodied, strong and sweet with a gentle acidity and complex flavor notes. The Guatemalan beans can handle a variety of roasting styles and you most likely have a favorite blend that does include the Guatemalan Peaberry, one of the most sought after coffee beans in the world right now.

The first coffee plants came to Guatemala in the 1700s and the Guatemalan government encouraged the growth of coffee plantations as the brew's popularity grew. Coffee quickly became the country's largest export and until 2011, Guatemala was one of the top 5 largest coffee producing countries when Honduras finally surpassed it.

Guatemala is a small country of cloud forests and glistening mountain lakes where varied microclimates produce countless coffee varieties. This excursion will bring you to some of the most beautiful parts of the country and allow you to meet some of the people benefiting from this industry. Watching the process of harvesting, selecting, and roasting your morning blend will open your eyes to the delicate balance and craftsmanship that is needed to deliver the quality people seek.

Enjoy your guide and the locals you meet along the way. Hearing from their experience the history of local coffee and how it is grown will create that appreciation often missing as you grab your morning cup a'joe.
