Shipping Calculator

1kg of premium grade arabica whole coffee beans. 

El Salvador has been a challenging origin to source coffee for some years due to the ravaging effects of the coffee leaf rust (Roya) epidemic and internal domestic conflicts.

This sweet tasting bourbon varietal is from San Juan Opicio, La Libertad, Llamatepec.

We loved the juicy notes of cooked fruit and praline with a solid score of 84.5 points.  

Amazing with milk, this coffee reminded us of stunning El-Salvadors that took the specialty coffee world by storm in 2009 and 2010.

Finca El Pinar De Santiago has been owned by Borja Letona and his family for generations.

The crop is mainly of naturally grown Bourbon varieties and consistently produces a clean and round cup.

Coffee varieties planted in this farm are Bourbon, Pacas, Catimor and Pacamara.

Pinar de Santiago has been a consistent finalist at the prestigious and internationally recognized coffee competition "Cup of Excellence" and has been a past winner in 2004.

Located in the western slope of the San Salvador volcano its soils are some of the most fertile in the country.

This is partially why, Pinar de Santiago is one of the few coffee farms located in the San Salvador volcano which have been awarded with the international award "Cup of Excellence".

Roaster's Notes

Bourbon coffees are often claimed to be perfect for espresso and in particular milk-based espresso.

We loved the acids from this coffee, standing up in the cup whether it's black or white (milk).

Grab it before it runs out.
