El Salvador – Las Mercedes
Las Mercedes is located in Northwest El Salvador on a chain of mountains near the Guatemalan border. The farm is bordered by the “El Gorge Impossible” which is a National Park and boasts of an incredible number of birds and wild life. Similar birds and trees, found on the farm itself, utilize the beautiful shade and habitat. This farm was formerly certified as Rain Forest Alliance until the owners found they could get better prices by selling for the quality of the coffee alone instead of paying for certification. We are now in our 3rd year of relations with the Dumont Family and are again happy to present to our customers this years Las Mercedes. Flavor notes – balanced, hazelnut, amaretto, pleasant but light acidity, medium body As a V60 pour over this coffee is rich and sweet and very clean in the finish. As a double espresso the mouth feel is viscous and thick and the color rich and crimson.
