Finca Australia from Guatemala was founded in 1986 by group of Guatemalan Coffee producers seeking to cluster unique and special coffees from that region. This has brought together the best plantations in order to offer the best tasting Guatemalan specialty coffees. This particular coffee was grown in the Volcanic San Marco Region. The warmest of the eight coffee-growing regions, San Marcos also has the highest rainfall pattern, reaching up to 200 inches (5,000 mm). The seasonal rains come sooner than in other regions, producing the earliest flowering. As in all of Guatemala’s remote regions, most of Volcanic San Marcos is cultivated on farms with their own processing mills. Finca Australia coffee is grown under dense shade as high as 6,500 feet (2,000 meters), creating a forest that is an ecological gift. Coffee notes: Delicate floral notes present in aroma and taste, pronounced acidity, and good body.
