About this coffee :

The Alvarez family has been growing coffee in El Salvador for over 100 years and across four generations. Their award-winning farms are located on the lush green hills of Santa Ana, in the west of the country, whose rich volcanic soils and mild climate provide ideal conditions for growing coffee.

The family owns several farms and also the renowned Borbollon Mill, where this lot was processed. All lots are hand-picked and collected in traditional hand-woven baskets from December until March by pickers who have been specially trained to select only the best and fully-mature coffee cherries.

The coffee is then processed in the family’s modern wet mill, sun dried on patios and stored in their purpose built facility. This allows the Alvarez family to manage the entire production process - with meticulous attention detail shown at every stage. The family and their staff are also skilled cuppers, and they regularly cup and re-cup their coffees to maintain quality.

As a result, this makes the coffee incredibly sweet! You'll get straight chocolate & apple pie like sweetness, finish with hints of macadamia nuttiness.
