Recommended Roast Level:
Dark (Full City Plus)
The boldness of this El Salvadoran bean really stood out during the first cupping. This coffee has the perfect contrast of a smooth, full-body and bold, complex taste. There are hints of toffee and almond, with the bittersweetness of dark chocolate. If you're looking for a Latin American espresso, you've come to the right place. Add some frothed milk and you will have the perfect morning cappuccino!
San Antonio Coffee Cooperative Production:
Comasagua is a town in El Salvador's La Libertad Department, tucked away in the El Balsamo mountain range. The altitude ranges from around 1000 meters to as high as 1500, and it's in this watershed region that the San Antonio coffee cooperative was erected some 40 years ago. Through the years, the coop has remained focused on sustainable agronomical practices with members using organic fertilizers and minimizing the use of synthetic inputs, and planting coffee in ways that help ground permeability, water retention, and decrease soil erosion. The coop started using their own eco-pulper for processing coffee down to the parchment-covered seed and drying on cement patios. The coffee is then trucked down to a dry mill nearby where the coffee can be stored in a cool warehouse space, and eventually, the parchment layer removed in order to prepare for export.
