The Guatemala Weather for 2013 delivered more then ample rain for the Guatemala Coffee Harvest. As we enter 2014 Coffee harvest the Guatemala Weather continues under sunny skies allowing for great drying of Organic Coffee throughout the Lake Atitlan Guatemala Coffee Region.
Last weekend I had the privilege of visiting La Voz Cooperative, a coffee cooperative, that is located in the stunningly beautiful Lake Atitlan region of the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Lake Atitlán provides an ideal environment for growing coffee—the region has a cooler climate than most other parts of Guatemala, there is plentiful and consistent rainfall each year, and the area is surrounded by the rich soils of the Atitlán, Toliman and the San Pedro volcanoes.
Harvesting usually begins in November and runs through February. Walking along the roadside you can see thousands of hectares of coffee trees covering the lush mountain sides all needing to be handpicked. Yes, you heard me correctly, harvesting is done by handpicking. Each tree is picked NUMEROUS times during harvest season. The fruit must be processed the same day it is picked otherwise the beans inside may spoil.
The Lake Atitlan Weather forecast for January 2014 offers Tour and Travel Operators around Lake Atitlan are finding warm days in the 70 Degree range with cool and comfortable sleeping with temperature in the mid 60 degree range. With these temperature do not be fooled one can easily burn in the warn sunny days so use sun block.
