Finca San Francisco is located in the Volcan de Santa Ana region, primarily known for the sweet and delicate coffees grown in the surroundings.
Jose Antonio and Andres Salaverria, fifth-generation coffee growers, manage there a few farms that work exclusively high-quality micro-lots.
Finca San Francisco is one of them. With an extension of 294 hectares, this farm is located at about 1500m asl. The farm is divided into tablons, i.e., blocks that are processed separately as microlot. This specialty coffee microlot came from the Tablon La Idependencia and stood out from the several ones we blind cupped this year from El Salvador.
It is, in fact, a microlot prepared according to the natural process: strictly hand-picked when perfectly ripe only, the cherries were dried on raised beds. The favorable meteorological conditions, such as the dry and never too hot climate, allow to slow down the drying phase, to control the fermentation, and obtain a cleaner and more complex profile.
Full of sweet flavors resembling vanilla, peach, and other ripe fruits, this coffee is syrupy and creamy with vigorous intensity and delicious sensations on the palate. It works very well as espresso, but this lot is also delightful in filter extractions.
