El Salvador Les Mercedes
Chocolate, Almond, Orange
This washed coffee is made up of the best pickings from around the producer’s estate. Using his experience, Fernando Aguilar has chosen to grow coffee plants that produce the best cup profile and are suited to his farm’s high elevations and rich soil on the slopes of the San Salvador volcano. The farm is surrounded by 100 hectares of nature reserve which Fernando helps to protect alongside a local non-governmental organisation aligning with his ecologically friendly farming practices.
Following meticulous management of the coffee at Finca Las Mercedes, it is taken to the nearby mill where it is held in fermentation tanks for around 12 hours and then sun-dried on clay patios for 14+ days. This helps to produce a coffee with a full and crisp flavour.
All of our coffee is now in sold in the most sustainable carbon-neutral packaging. We use the new, innovative designs from Dutch Coffee Pack, which is made entirely of plastic that is 100% recyclable. All of the carbon emitted in the production of these bags is compensated in full by reducing emissions elsewhere without compromising the freshness of the coffee inside.
