El Salvador Las Mercedes

VANILLA – PEANUT BUTTER – PLUM

This natural filter is a distinctly exceptional offering due to its unique variety. The Maracaturra is a hybrid – a merging of the Caturra: typically sweet and elegant in character, and the Maragogype: sometimes referred to as “elephant bean” for its large size and well-known for presenting floral, citrus flavours with a higher acidity. The cupping profile of the Maracaturra has benefited from the combination of genes it has inherited; a combination resulting in a clean-tasting, complex coffee with layers of sweetness.

 

Owned and managed by Lucia Ortiz and her family, Finca Las Mercedes is located at Cerro El Tigre, 3 km to the east of Santiago de Maria, Usulutan. We have been trading directly with Lucia since 2015, and as well as producing exceptional coffees, the Ortiz family sponsors a doctor’s station – The Ortiz Dispensario – on the farm, which provides healthcare to people from 11 neighbouring communities.

 

Grown at 1,460 m.a.s.l on the El Rubi plot of the farm, this coffee has a silky body and mouthfeel with notes of vanilla, peanut butter and plum and mellow acidity, presenting a subtle but distinctive natural processed character.
