Farm name: Finca El Salvador
Variety: Red Bourbon
Region: Cerro el Aguila
Tasting Notes: Red Fruits / Honey
Located at the top of Cerro El Aguila, on the north face of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range, the coffee is planted currently up to 1640 meters. Above this area used to be too cold to plant Bourbon, but with gloal climate change, we are now able to go higher.
Over the last few years, the new generation, Rodolfo Ruffatti Batlle, has focused on bringing exotic varieties to the farm and this year we will have our first production of Rume Sudan. In the nursery, we have SL-28 and next year the farm will plant Tabi and Pink Bourbon from Colombia.
The coffee is processed by the Productor.Coffee team in Juayua, making the bulk of production honey process with smaller volume of naturals. After some years of experiments, this year we are also producing long fermentations (some people call them anaerobics) both cherry and parchment fermentations which increase frutiness and acidity.
