About this coffee: 

As its name describes it, this farm is a jewel in the heart of the coffee republic, in the western part of El Salvador. In the city of Apaneca, 189 Hectares of pure Bourbon are 100% grown under native shade trees, in full harmony with the environment and a high degree of social responsibility. All activities at the farm are in accordance with the Rainforest Certification.

The most impressive thing with coffees from Salaverria is the overall quality of picking: deep blood red and uniform colour. Considering the volumes they are doing in total it is pretty amazing!

The coffees are for the most part processed based on trials and adjustments we made at the wet mill. They are using eco pulpers called Jotagallo which are doing about 80% mechanical demucilaging. Their standard procedure is to take the parchment from the pulpers directly to the patio for drying.

This El Salvador washed coffee is clean and smooth with a juicy mouthfeel. Familiar smoothness of chocolate and hazelnut, with a fruity aftertaste of cherry aromatics.
