volcano in Guatemala. Pacaya is still active, but most of the time the activity is low enough that it can
safely be climbed. There are two trails to reach the top of the volcano, one takes about 90 minutes
and it is more difficult, the other is an easy one and takes about 1 hour. We also have the opportunity to
horseback ride to the top of the volcano.
Due to the volcano's activity, the area close to the top changes continuously and
can vary from week to week, or even from day to day. It may or may not be possible to reach the crater's edge,
and you may or may not see lava.

the coffee is harvested and toasted before it gets to your cup.
