Farms of Lake Atitlán coffee is mainly from a village called Pacoc which is right outside San Lucas Toliman on the way to Cerro de Oro.
Our partner, Los Volcanes, work with close to 100 producers in this area, and each producer gets paid individually and each producer delivers 1 to 2 bags of cherry every day.
The slopes around the lake where the farmers are located are at high altitude, the gradient gets very steep very fast, going from 1600 up to 1900 meters in a few km.
The village of Pacoc start in front of the lake and expand on the volcano behind it.
In between the beginning and end of January, Los Volcanes organise pick up in the area combining it in the same route the coffees from San Andrés, a village on the south-facing part of the Volcano that does not look towards the Lake.
The side of the Volcano where Pacoc and San Andrés are located has great coffee growing conditions with steady rain p through the year and volcanic rich sandy soil with a lot of pumice that makes it easier to work compared to the surrounding areas where the ground is a lot h composed mainly of rock and petrified lava.
