About this coffee :

Mauricio Salaverria is a 6th-generation coffee producer working on lands his family have cultivated since the mid-1800s. Finca Himalaya is their original farm, which was cultivated by Mauricio’s ancestors, who immigrated to El Salvador from Basque country in the Pyrenees in the 1800s. The family acquired Finca Cruz Gorda in the 1940s.

Mauricio and his father were among the first people in El Salvador to produce specialty coffee. Their early focus on high-quality specialty coffees helped them access new buyers and focus on consistently improving cup quality. Their first farm, Finca Himalaya, produced the first Natural lot to score in the top 10 at El Salvador’s Cup of Excellence and has garnered several more top-10 placements since then.

Mauricio planted cypress, pine and inga trees to offer ideal shade cover for growing coffee. The region’s rich volcanic soil provides plenty of nutrients.

This coffee is a unique one that tastes very different from other El Salvador coffee. You'll get a berries jam & tropical fruity note, finishing with a malted chocolate aftertaste. This coffee makes a super juicy espresso & americano.
