Peach, Cream, Lemon Balm
|Usulután, El Salvador||1500 m|
Las Mercedes is run by Robert and Lucia Ortiz in Usulutån, El Salvador. They run the farm with precision and control employing varying varietals and processes to produce outstanding coffees. They also provide a school and a clinic, as well as other necessities, on the farm for the families of their workers. This rare varietal is a hybrid between a maragogype and a caturra, lending itself to a very complex coffee - not to mention it's naturally-processed. We find notes of peach, cream, and lemon balm.
