EL SALVADOR "Fazenda San Carlos" (Washed) - Whole Beans
Finca San Carlos is located on the slopes of Cerro Grande in Concepción de Ataca in Western El Salvador. A mild climate of 17 – 22ºC during the day and annual rainfall of 1500-1800 during the wet season create ideal conditions for quality coffees. Rich, loamy volcanic soils and he stress-free maturation of the cherries on Finca San Carlos allows for the development of complex acids which result in bright coffees with good sweetness and a rich mouthfeel. Coffees are picked and processed then dried on raised beds.
Finca San Carlos is managed by Carlos Mendez and his brother who operates the family-owned farm. In 2010 the farm was placed amongst the top 20 in the Cup of Excellence competition.
