Guatemala Antigua coffees are Strictly Hard Bean coffees grown at elevations from 4,600 feet to 5,600 feet where the temperatures range from 66 to 71 degrees Fahrenheit (19 to 22 Celsius). 

 The rainfall in this region is usually between 800 mm and 1,200 mm each year with a humidity that stays relatively constant at around 65%. 

 Distinct dry seasons and wet seasons provide for a consistent climate that leads to a uniformity of maturation among the coffee plants, with green coffee harvesting typically occurring from January to the middle of March.

Coffee farm tours are a popular tourist attraction in Antigua. With a large coffee producing region you can find a number of farms to visit where you can learn the ins-and-outs of growing coffee, harvesting it, processing it and roasting it.
