Guatemala green coffee beans are one of the most internationally well-received coffees in Central America. Guatemala first started to produce coffee in the mid-19th century and it became their primary export by the late 19th century. This coffee is bright, fruity and clean and varies depending on where it was farmed, as there are a variety of farms throughout Guatemala and the differences in altitude, terrain and weather conditions. This includes the local, smaller farms to the more massive estates. The Guatemala Jasmin has a high acidity, sweetness and wine-like flavor.
Guatemala is slightly smaller than Tennessee and exported over three million 60KG bags of coffee between October 2012 and June 2013. Guatemala is located in Central America between Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Like Honduras, Guatemala falls within the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn giving it an ideal climate for coffee farming. Due to its various microclimates and volcanic soil, Guatemalan coffee has a combination of delicate aroma and unique aftertaste.
