This fully washed coffee from Café Tuxpal Estates in El Salvador is bright and zesty, with notes of lemon, chocolate orange and red grape.
This coffee comes from the Café Tuxpal Estates in the San Juan Opico, Santa Ana region of El Salvador. It’s an incredible place to grow coffee, with it’s own microclimate consisting of dry winters and warm summers – and a rich and fertile soil thanks to Ilamatepec (a still-active volcano to the west of the country). The history of the estates date back to 1905, when when José Rosa Pacas bought his first farm in the Apaneca-Ilamatepec Mountain range – Finca San Rafael. It’s been passed on through generations, now owned and ran by Federico Lopez Pacas, and the operation has grown to include every part of the coffee supply chain.
This coffee is fully washed, meaning the fruit and mucilage is completely removed from the cherry seed, resulting in a bright and clean taste. We’re getting lots of brightness from All the Single Lattes, with masses of zesty lemon and refreshing red grape. There’s also a lovely sweetness, with notes of hazelnut and chocolate orange.
