Background Details

This coffee is sourced from Finca Gobiado, a family owned operation located near the town of Concepcion de Ataco in the Illamatepec mountain range within the department of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. The Alfaro family has been cultivating coffee for four generations on the 30-acre farm. This bourbon varietal is meticulously picked and sorted, and then placed on raised beds and turned regularly for more than 20 days to ensure even drying. The Alfaro family has discovered through years of experience that their bourbon varietal responds exceptionally well to being processed naturally and the method also saves a tremendous amount of water resources, which is good for the environment.
