The Cobán region has a unique climate relative to other coffee regions. Instead of a dry and rainy season, Cobán benefits from a misty and rainy season. Its unique rainforest and tropical climate is influenced by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Farm management needs to be implemented differently to keep leaf rust at bay.
The rain fall in Cobán is distinct and known across the country as “chipi-chipi” - which is a ﬁne mist.
