COFFEE FLAVOUR NOTES

The coffee has delicious flavours of milk chocolate, almond, shortbread and hints of orange. The medium body and acidity lends itself to a balanced and mild cup.

 

ORIGIN STORY

This wonderful coffee won Bronze at the Blas na hÉireann Food Awards 2020.

It is grown by Fernando & Juan Aguilar from Las Mercedes & Santa Maria across 160 hectares of shade-rich nature on the north-eastern slope of the San Salvador Volcano. Las Mercedes and sister estate Santa Maria are surrounded by 100 hectares of nature reserve designated as a part of the Meso-American biological corridor, including a remarkable 'mini rainforest'. Given the importance of the perseveration of the forest, the Aguilar family, in conjunction with a local NGO, have two park rangers that look after the protected natural forest year-round.

The Aguilar family have been producing coffees here for the past 6 generations.

Smooth delicious Coffee!

I was delighted to discover this coffee brand in Aldi originally and now buy direct from Velo. I would describe this as smooth medium bodied, though I am by no means an expert!
