ABOUT THIS COFFEE

El Salvador might be the smallest country in Central America, but the coffee that hails from this densely populated origin is highly renowned for its quality, grown in the shade out of rich volcanic ash soil. El Salvador green coffee beans often play an important balancing role in creating blends because of the association with a mellow flavor intensity, but innovative farming and processing methods can also produce colorful and complex flavors that are lively on their own. The majority of El Salvador coffee is washed. This Santa Ana coffee from the slopes of the country’s third-largest coffee producing region comes from a community of small producers who grow two of El Salvador’s most popular varieties: Bourbon and Pacas. Santa Ana’s proximity to Guatemala means the coffee sometimes shares similar characteristics and is often on the sweeter side, with nut and chocolate notes. Strictly High Grown (SHG) coffee signifies that the coffee was grown above 1,200 meters. Higher elevations mean slower bean development, which leads to more nutrient density that results in more flavor.
