A fantastic specialty grade natural coffee from El Salvador. Bursting with crisp, sweet apple notes. Rounded nicely with a warm toffee undertone. This one really is beauty in a cup.
Mario Acosta is a fourth-generation coffee farmer from El Salvador and is the proud owner of Finca Nazareth in the famous Ahuachapán region. It is prime coffee growing territory.
Mario and his family have three estates in this region, all near the town of Concepcion de Ataco. The family have gone great lengths to achieve Rainforest Alliance certification. They take a holistic approach to sustainability and do their utmost to protect wildlife and conserve water. Lastly, they ensure good working conditions for their workers and have health and safety programs in place.
Mario and his family also take a stringent approach to quality. The coffee on the family’s farms is selectively harvested, with only the best and ripest cherries being selected. All coffee is meticulously sorted before being delivered for processing.
This particular lot is an exceptional naturally processed Bourbon varietal. These cherries are started on raised beds before eventually being moved onto clay patios. The coffee is sun dried and regularly turned until perfectly matured.
Varietal: Red Bourbon
