El Salvador Nejapa Los Vientos

Single Origin

Te Aro

We are very proud to present to you our first directly-sourced coffee from El Salvador! At the beginning of the year our roasting team had the opportunity to visit a few coffee farms, mills, nurseries and labs in El Salvador, and they came back with this beauty of a Bourbon.

During their stay they were chaperoned by the inimitable Luis Rodriguez, who is a liaison between producers and importers/roasters and a producer himself. He brought them to different farms and mills, cupped many coffees with them, trying to find out what they liked, and drank copious amount of beer with them too! In the end they ended up choosing coffee from a farm operated by Gloria Rodriguez, none other than Luis' mother-in-law, and a very renowned producer in her own right, having placed in more than a few Cup of Excellence competitions in years past. 

Actually being on the ground to see Gloria's hard work, her extensive wisdom and the care with which she treats her crop and her employees; these things along with the quality of her coffee made the choice very easy indeed. She even let the roasting team into her home for dinner, and drinks for a night! What a classy lady.

This is (we hope) the beginning of a long-lasting and blossoming relationship with Gloria, her family, and her awesome coffee - expect to hear more from them in the future.

We liked this coffee because of how clean it was, with wonderful caramel and chocolate flavours coming through, with pleasant floral and citrus in the background, excellent acidity, and a very smooth mouthfeel.
