Orientation & Coffee 101, Antigua
We begin our Guatemalan adventure at the front doors of La Aurora International Airport but quickly take our orientation to Antigua. In the country’s colonial capital, our group will acclimatize to the sights, smells, sounds, and smiles of the region. We’ll explore the cobblestone streets of Central America’s historical colonial capital and orient ourselves to the country’s cultural and geographic landscape.
We’ll also kick start our understanding of “fair trade” with a visit to San Miguel Escobar and our friends at De La Gente (DLG). On the side of incredible Volcán Agua, we’ll work alongside local campesinos like Freddie and Filiberto learning to pick, process, and roast our coffee.
