San Miguel Escobar is an idyllic small town situated at the foot of volcano Agua, approximately 4 miles from Antigua. In the 16th century San Miguel was the second colonial capital of Guatemala until it was destroyed by a catastrophic mudflow from the volcano in 1541. In present times it is a typical Guatemalan town and home to many coffee farmers. 30 of these farmers formed a cooperative in 2014, working collaboratively to grow, process and export high quality coffee. The superb results of this collaboration comprise our second direct trade coffee. High elevation, volcanic soil paired with a temperate climate results in a cup that is familiar yet complex. Notes of brown spice give way to sweet milk chocolate, finishing with a citrus acidity.

Each bag of Forged Coffee comes with 2 packets of Third Wave Water, which can be added to one gallon of distilled or reverse-osmosis water to create optimum coffee brewing water, greatly increasing the flavor of your brew.
