La Leona is a community coffee from producers in the department of San Marcos and named for the areas prominent use of the Lion of St Mark.


La Leona is the coff­ee that perfectly represents the community of San Marcos, Guatemala. The lion is the symbol of the evangelist St Mark, and throughout history, it has been represented worldwide by statues, on coins, flags and other insignias. In the department of San Marcos, there are statues of the Lion of St Mark, signifying the power of the evangelist word, the spiritual elevation of the people and their devoutness. Due to the delicate, floral and subtle notes of orange and honey in their coff­ee, this community blend is best described as the female lion!


The area is surrounded by two of the highest peaks in Guatemala, the Tajumulco and Tamaca volcanoes. Tajumulco and Tamaca are very characteristic of the region, they stand out creating a beautiful sight and result in coff­ee farms having ideal volcanic fertile soil. The producers that put together La Leona co­ffee are committed to quality. They have worked hard on their infrastructure over the years to improve the quality of what they do. Today, they are proud of the coff­ee that they produce and are excited for what they future holds.
