Quality Report - El Salvador Finca Milaydi Pacamara Washed

About This Coffee

Producer Ever Leonel Diaz first planted coffee trees on their farm Finca Milaydi in 2004. In humble beginnings, they began with one thousand saplings. Today, Finca Milaydi is planted with over five hectares filled with coffee trees. The main varieties planted are Pacamara and Pacas, and the lots across the farm have been separated by tree origin. For example, the Pacamara plants bought a couple of years ago came from trees that were six years old and planted in a specific lot on the property. This is just one fun fact that makes this farm special and unique.

When Ever completes the picking and harvesting of the cherries, they are sorted by hand and processed before being transported in parchment to the local warehouse in Chalatenango, where the inside temperature is maintained throughout the entire year at a perfect 22 Degrees Celsius, perfect for storage of green beans.
