About the bean 

This batch of El Salvador SHG EP comes to us from Finca San Antonio run by the Boza family, which includes three sisters in key operational roles. Karla Boza, in particular, is fast gaining a profile for her international efforts to improve fair prices for farmers.

Finca San Antonio focuses primarily on specialty coffee production through sustainable methods. They are noted for their commitment to the local environment and community development. Certified by the Rainforest Alliance, the farm holds a rating of 95.75% on average.

An elegantly spare, well composed Salvadorian. A strong baker's chocolate taste combines with a most enjoyable creamy body. Smooth and easy. Great for espresso or as a base for blending.
