Description

Finca Himalaya is a 60-hectare farm owned by Mauricio A. Salaverria, who also owns a farm called Finca Divisadero. This farm is located in the Apaneca Mountains in El Salvador’s Ataco region. This Black Honey processed Anacafe 14 (a Pacamara Hybrid) variety is picked ripe and de-pulped the next day, then dry fermented for 20 hours. It’s dried on raised beds for 23 to 25 days. His farms are planted with Bourbon, Pacamara, and Maragogype varieties, as well as this Anacafe 14 offering. He also grows cypress, pine, and inga shade trees. The rich volcanic soil and use of shade create a very hospitable environment for the coffee, and Mauricio has developed his own systems for processing.

 

The cup is sweet with tangy, winey fruit acidity, a heavy mouthfeel; berry, cooked fruit, cocoa, and floral flavors.

 

*This is a honey processed coffee, meaning it has been dried in fruit and will have strong ferment notes.
