Roasters thoughts: “We were fortunate to land a small amount of this coffee. We haven’t had an El Salvador in the house for 4 years so it’s reignited that love again!”
It would seem logical that the smallest Central American coffee-growing country would produce microlots, but historically, much of the coffee was blended and sold to mills, without much lot differentiation and separation. The rise of specialty coffee in El Salvador has inspired many producers to start to identify and isolate individual varieties, and to experiment with sorting and processing, as a way of attracting buyers and getting higher prices, but access to those resources can still be difficult for smaller growers.
An exceptional coffee out of El Salvador, super clean, super sweet, tidy acidity, just super. Ticking all those specialty coffee boxes.
