COFFEE FLAVOUR NOTES
The coffee has a delightful and balanced full body coffee with notes of plum, raisin, cardamom, milk & dark chocolate to keep you cruising.
This coffee is a micro-lot from one of our favourite farms, Las Mercedes. 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. The Aguilar family have been producing coffees here for the past 6 generations and lead El Salvador in producing environmental centred coffee. 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.
