Nestled between tall mountains and ancient Mayan ruins lies the city of Chalchuapa, home-base of the Cuzcapacha cooperative. Just north of there is the farm of Finca Carmen from where we get this beautiful coffee. 

This lot is made up from Pacas, Catimor, Castillo & Bourbon varieties, the beans are large and very uniform thanks to great growing conditions and the washed processing. It has great clarity and an iconic taste that is easy to fall in love with.

We have worked with this coffee for several years and are very happy to finally share the fresh harvest with you!

"Finca Carmen is extremely smooth, with a clean flavour. The round, opulent body and fairly low acidity make it an ideal choice if you take milk with your coffee. We find notes of chocolate, almonds and oranges in this well-balanced, structured and sweet coffee. In the roast we develop it slightly longer to accentuate the body and balance."

Coffee production in El Salvador has fueled the Salvadoran economy and shaped its history for more than a century. Rapidly growing in the 19th century, coffee in El Salvador has traditionally provided more than 50% of the country's export revenues, reaching a peak in 1980 with a revenue of more than $615 million.

Unusual for Central America, approximately 60% of the coffee produced in El Salvador is Bourbon, characterised by an exceptionally clean, bright and sweet profile with strong citrus note. The country’s unusually high percentage of this renowned coffee varietal, however, is currently under threat from coffee leaf rust, whose impact on the country’s production has been sizable, resulting in a 20 percent drop in revenue from exports between 2011 and 2013.
