Laguna de Ayarza (Lake Ayarza) is in the Santa Rosa department of Guatemala. It is known locally as Laguna Azul (Blue Lake). Lake Ayarza was formed around 20,000 years ago by 2 massive volcanos that collapsed forming a 14km² crater. Lake Ayarza is in a remote location and access is difficult. This means it has remained in pristine condition with only around 10 houses built around its edge. 

This lot is grown by smallholder farmers located around the Lake Ayarza area. These farmers deliver berries to a centralized mill by pickup truck, or sometimes a single sack on the back of a donkey.
