Single Origin El Salvador specialty grade coffee beans

Here you can order our single origin El Salvador coffee beens. 

We roast these coffees to a precise medium depth based upon a profile developed for competition coffees.

The result is amazing with juicy acidity and refined balance.

They are available by default as whole beans, however, we can also grind the fresh roasted coffee beans - please select your required grind options above before adding the item to your cart.

Our El Salvadorian coffee beans are all an excellent choice for Espresso style coffee or filter/plunger coffee processing styles

El Salvador coffees are grown at high altitude (1,400 - 1,500 masl) in shaded plantations and have variously featured in many espresso blends used by country and world barista champions over the past decade.

They bring a complex, fresh, sweet and perfectly balanced flavour for a single origin coffee with added hints of mandarin and cocoa.

Our El Salvador offering is a beautiful single origin coffee from the El Borbollon Estate located in the Volcan de Santa Ana region.

Managed by the Alvarez family. all aspects of quality are strictly controlled and this delightful bourbon varietal displays lush citrus and cocoa flavours.
A fully washed coffee with a hint of fruit it has a wonderful mandarin citric acidity fused with rich, smooth chocolate in a perfectly balanced and clean cup.
 
There is something delicious about mandarin and chocolate - just like a gourmet dessert.
 
El Salvador has experienced many years of challenging conditions for it's coffee industry.
 
The Roya (Coffee Leaf Rust) epidemic in 2015 wiped out almost 40+% of the crop.
 
The country also faces many difficulties with a poor economy, violence and corruption. It's coffee industry is at a tipping point - farmers are not receiving enough $$ for their crops to cover costs and with the constant battles to eradicate pests and diseases from their harvests, the entire feasibility of growing coffee in El Salvador hangs in the balance.
 
We used to source larger volumes of El Savador coffees when they were easily available - we absolutely love the flavours and balance which are unique amongst the Central American coffee producing origins. These days, we source only smaller volumes when we can which means we often have numerous rotating lots of coffee throughout the year.
 
It's not all bad news though for El Salvador. There is a strong belief within the coffee community that El Salvador will turn the corner and rise up again. The coffees we see from El Salvador are spectacular and along with the rest of the coffee community we can see incredible potential.
 
El Salvadorean farmers are starting programs that focus more upon speciality - much like what has transformed Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia.

The last few years have not been kind to El Salvadoran coffee farmers.

Roya (Coffee Leaf Rust) epidemic has destroyed up to 40% of crop yields and the rebuilding process is taking longer due to the country's struggling economic and political crisis.

El Salvador coffees are very good, in fact they can be world beaters........balanced, smooth, silky with a texture that is rewarding.

This lot is from the Alvarez family in Volcan de Santa Ana. Grown between 1,400 and 1,500 masl, it's a wonderful Bourbon that is fully washed.

All coffee on this estate is hand-picked and only the ripest cherries are processed at the mill. The quality control by the estate is first rate with carefully controlled pulping, fermentation, washing and then sun drying on aged clay patios.

The processed coffees are store in silos to age prior to being screened for export.

You won't be disappointed with these coffee - the only shame is the short supply.

NOTE:- June 2017 Newsletter promotion is for a small, special lot from El Molino.

Beautiful Coffee!

16 December 2018
I purchased this coffee with plunger grind to make cold brew. I use a ratio of 120gms per liter of water and leave it for 12 hours in my plunger in the fridge before plunging and decanting the coffee. I drink it with milk as an iced latte and it is AMAZING! Lots of chocolate and some citrus come through to give a smooth yet bright coffee.
