José Antonio Salaverría and his sons Andrés and José jr. run several farms in the area around the Santa Ana volcano in El Salvador. We've purchased coffee from them before and were impressed by the high quality and consistency of the coffee.

This is a blended lot that has been naturally processed at the Las Cruces mill which the Salaverría family own and operate. They have an inspiring commitment to coffee quality which is one of the reasons they are able to produce natural and anaerobic lots of much higher quality than the norm in El Salvador. But don't just take my word for it, take a few minutes and listen to José himself talk about their approach to coffee and their relationship with importer Nordic Approach, who we bought this lots from.

We bought this lot because of it's intensity, clarity and fruity flavour profile.
