El Salvador Finca San Miguel
Farm Description: The town of Chalchuapa sits near the western slopes of the Volcán de Santa Ana (Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range to be exact), and is where this coffee originates. Finca San Miguel is a 12 hectare farm planted almost entirely in Bourbon, with a nominal amount of Pacas mixed in as well. Altitude at the farm is 1300 meters above sea level, and this coffee is a fully washed, and dried on clay patios. 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. This gives the farmer the opportunity to be paid premium prices for their best coffee, which for some of these farmers, is a new opportunity.
