The high quality of coffee from Guatemala is created by the perfect mix of high altitude, temperate climate, rich soil minerals, careful quality control and the specific species of coffee plants. Organic coffee beans are becoming an ever more prevalent part of the coffee growing business.
The most suitable temperature for the healthy growth and abundant production of coffee in Guatemala is that of 16 to 32 °C (60 to 90 °F). In lands situated at an altitude of 500–700 metres (1,600–2,300 ft) above sea level, young plants must be shaded. In zones averaging an altitude of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft), the plantations must be sheltered from the cold north winds. For the most part, the coffee plantations are situated at an altitude varying from 500–5,000 metres (1,600–16,400 ft) above sea level.
Coffee from Other Central American Countries
Coffee from other Central American countries like El Salvador, Honduras and Cost Rica are also of excellent quality and taste. Honduras has become an increasingly important producer of coffee in recent years. The climate, altitude levels and cultivation practices are similar to those in Guatemala.
