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.
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.

Great tasting and consistency.
Easily my favourite coffee on here. Have tried 5 or 6 but this is beautiful. Rich chocolatey nutty taste. A+++
Also thank you very much for the Christmas giveaway 2 lovely bags of the Christmas blend coffee. Haven't tried it yet but I am looking forward to it.
Great product and super fast delivery
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!
