This Seasonal Espresso Blend is a combination of two coffees from Central America. 65% of the blend comes from The Santa Clara of Guatemala. This coffee is grown on the fertile southern slopes of the Volcán de Agua in the Antigua Valley which has the altitude of 1,600-1,830masl. Santa Clara Estate itself is run by innovative fourth-generation coffee producer Ricardo Zelaya, who is passionately committed to both quality and sustainability. The other 35% of the blend consists of El Borbollon from El Salvador. The Alvarez brothers who are also fourth-generation coffee producers told that their two farms are located 1,400-1,500masl. Located on the hills of Santa Ana, where the rich volcanic soil and mild climate, provide ideal conditions for growing specialty coffee. Unlike most producers in El Salvador, the Alvarez have their own wet and dry mills. This enables them to separate and process their coffees by variety and picking day, giving them greater oversight and the ability to better influence the quality in the cup.
