Chuťový profil: dusená rebarbora, tamarind, horká čokoláda

It is the first farm bought it from Los Naranjos Café back in 2014, It has different varieties from bourbon, Pacas and Cuscatleco. The farm it is run by Don Angel, he has been the farm manager for the last three decades.

This farm it is located in the Apaneca-Ilampatepec Coffee Region, most accurate in Cantón, El Arado in the Municipy of Chalchuapa, Santa Ana.

The plantation management perform soil studies to determine the lack of nutrients and try to supply them with the fertilization. Also, the weed management we do it with “machete o cumas” not use of chemicals. Most of the coffee trees are from 5- 15 years old. We are renovated with younger coffees to increase the production.

This lot is made up solely of bourbon that was picked selectively before being taken to the wet mill and drying beds at Beneficio San Rafael located between the two hills of El Pilon and Cerro Aguila at 1450 masl. The position between the two hills allows for the flow of the prevailing wind to help dry the coffees slowly and evenly.

Here the bourbon is washed and floated before then laid out on drying beds for between 25 – 30 days where it is moved every hour until ready and dried between the hours of 08.00 – 14.30
