We are so excited to bring this coffee back for a second year. Rafael and Carmen Silva are two people whose commitment to coffee quality is only surpassed by their hospitality. We discovered this farm and their lovely mill on our last trip to El Salvador (special thanks to Steve over at Has Bean for making the introduction) and were instantly blown away by the incredible coffees they put in front of us. The attention to detail and the meticulous way in which they process coffees shines in the cup. This lovely farm in the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range (1500-1600 MASL) is 100% shade-grown coffee. This particular lot blew us away on the cupping table and is from an area of the farm called "Plan de Cedro." 100% Bourbon and honey-processed, this is truly a very sweet coffee.
We get notes of red fruit, figs and a honeycomb sweetness.
