The Coffee

We are delighted to have this newest natural coffee on our hand, the El Salvador San Ramon. This speciality micro-lot coffee offers a range of complexity you would expect from naturally-processed coffees, consisting of bright notes of Orange and Nectarine, complimented by an irresistibly smooth chocolatey body.

The Process

This coffee has been caringly processed using a pulped-natural method, otherwise referred to as being semi-washed.  The Pulped natural is a process where the skin is removed from the coffee cherry. This leaves the fruity mucilage still intact during the drying processwhich contributes to creating a bean full of flavour.

The coffee is milled at the groups Benficio Las Cruces, located in nearby Santa Ana. The cherries are then depulped and moved to the drying tables via water channels. This tends to be because a slightly larger volume is depulped at one time, as in this instance, an entire plot on the farm. The brief contact with water slightly reduces the percentage of mucilage on the bean and therefore affects the final flavour in the cup.

The Farm

The name 'San Ramon' refers to the plot in which the coffee is grown. The San Ramon plot is located within the San Francisco farm, a member of the JASAL group. The San Francisco farm is owned by Jose Antonio Salaverria, and The farm itself is part of a national forest reserve is located in the stunning Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range. This volcanic range runs through the Ahuachapán, Santa Ana, and Sonsonate departments in the west of El Salvador, and is where many of the Cup of Excellence producing farms are located.
