Your July Coffee is Finca El Carmen

El Salvador’s Apaneca - llamatepec mountain range is one of Central America’s prime specialty coffee producing areas. The estate was founded in the middle of the 19th century when Antonio Jose Alfaro acquired a plot of land near the village of Ataco - meaning “Site of Elevated Springs’ in the indigenous Nahuatl language - where he started to produce coffee. The estate’s coffee is produces under approximately 60% shade cover, which is required for the coffee to ripen evenly. During the harvest, the red and orange Bourbon cherries are hand - picked only when perfectly ripe and de pulped the same day. The beans are then naturally fermented ripe and de-pulped the same day. The beans are then naturally fermented, washed with pure spring water, and sun - dried on clay patios.
