El Salvador - El Almendro
Jan-Carlo and Sofia Handtke
This coffee is grown on 50 year old trees that sit at 1,400 masl and overlook the Pacific ocean. During the rainy season the trees barely get touched by sunlight. Fog surrounds the farm from early morning and so the beans grow slowly under very humid conditions. This is undoubtedly favorable for coffee plants. With all the nuances of varietal, growing conditions, and processing, we taste peach, passionfruit, and berries in this harvest.
