COFFEE FLAVOUR NOTES
The coffee is a lightly sweet and syrupy with a quick floral punch and delightful lasting finish.
This coffee is a micro-lot from the El Slavador Las Mercedes that will keep you pedaling thorugh the day. 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. Here, the Aguilar family have been producing coffees for the past 6 generations. They are leaders in El Salvador producing environmentally 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.
