El Salvador Finca Miravalle Bourbon

El Salvador Finca Miravalle Bourbon


This, our first offer from El Salvador, and we’re pretty excited about it! Finca Miravalle is owned by Luis Duarte, and is located not far from the Santa Ana volcano at 1500 meters above sea level. Duarte has kept his farm planted in Bourbon and Pacamara for the most part, despite the susceptibility to leaf rust. Many farmers are replanting with disease resistant varietals, but Duarte has chosen to continue with these cultivars because of the commonly held belief that they taste superior. Miravalle is only a few hectares in size, and is perched on the verdant slopes of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain region. This lot is the result of a new coffee project in the region by one of the local mills, their goal being to identify the top qualities from farmers they already buy coffee from. These coffees are then kept separate throughout the milling process, and sold as an individual microlots as opposed to being lost to large blends.

Miravalle Bourbon is filled with flavor! It’s clean in the cup with cocoa, caramel, and baking spices. It’s a medium body roast that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
