Guatemala Atitlan

Description

Atitlan is both the name of a lake and a volcano, situated in the Sololá department of Guatemala. The lake itself is endorheic, meaning it does not drain in to the ocean or sea, and is overlooked by three volcanoes, Atitlan (3535masl) and Tolimán (3158masl) to the south and San Pedro (3020masl) to the west, the slopes of which provide the vast majority of this coffee. Home to the Resplendent Quetzal and cloud forests, enveloping the thickly wooded slopes with a low lying, canopy level mist, the volcanic soil can bring a lot of benefits in terms of nutrients to the plants. As we saw in June 2018 however, there is always a threat of disruption and loss of life that eruptions can bring. Atitlan, thankfully is classed as historically active, but has not erupted since 1853.
