||El Salvador Finca Loma La Gloria Washed 2012
El Salvador is a stunning country for coffee. The mixture of plant stock (mostly Bourbon) with amazing altitude, and great volcanic soils means it has some of the most amazing coffees. And most of it is grown on the Santa Ana volcano on the Ipaneica mountain range.
So it's great to find somewhere else, as everyone has those coffees.
This is from the municipality of Quezaltepeque in the department of libertad. It has an altitude of 1700 masl (meters above sea level). The farm has a range of varietals, from traditional Bourbon to Pacas and Pacamara.
This is another of our direct trade coffees that we secured with the help of El Mono mill and Alejandro from Argentina, and I'm super proud to show it to you.
I'm proud to show you because of what's in the cup, where it is just like a Malteser. Milk chocolate on the outside, malty honeycomb on the inside, with a lovely watermelon and raspberry acidity.
