El Salvador Finca El Salvador 48 Espresso
Fresh harvest from Finca El Salvador has arrived! This harvest we are kicking off with the first of four lots that we have ordered - Finca El Salvador 48 hour natural process! This coffee is made up of mostly the Bourbon variety grown at between 1500 and 1670 masl on the slopes of the Cerro el aguila mountain, in Apaneca-Ilamatepec. Last year we had the 120 hour fermented version but to start things of we’ve gone with the 48 hour. As you would expect it’s funky, with dark chocolate bonbon and plum jam notes.
This year, Rodolfo has taken over management of this farm from his father and is now officially a 6th generation coffee farmer. He also processed this coffee himself and to avoid using the over used, misleading anaerobic term he calls this a cherry maceration natural. The cherries are fermented in their own juice in a low oxygen environment for 48 hours and then dried on beds as a standard natural would be.
