PROFILE AND PARTNERSHIP

MILD LEMON AND LIME, CREAMY, BLANCHED ALMOND

Filter Roast / Light - Medium

This coffee is one of three from the El Cipres farm, each highlighting a different varietal and flavour profile.

**Limited Supply**

This coffee is bursting with flavour and sweetness - a real ‘Pic N’ Mix’. We first visited Tomas at his farm in February 2019, and committed to sourcing fresh crop every year, paying twice the FairTrade price for this coffee. This year, we worked with Tomas to source three coffees with three different varietals from El Cipres - Red Bourbon (mainstay), Orange Bourbon (limited edition), and Yellow Bourbon (limited edition). Head to our blog to learn more about the differences and what to expect from each of these coffees.

All three coffees can also be gifted in our limited edition El Salvador Three Ways Gift Pack.

We think all of our coffees taste great no matter how you prepare them, but here are our favourite brew methods for this coffee:

ABOUT EL CIPRES

The El Cipres farm is located on the slopes of the Santa Ana Volcano, at a height of 1,600 to 1,700 meters above sea level. Producer Don Tomas first planted the bourbon variety 10 years ago and has ensured an increase in quality year on year thanks to careful farm management and good agricultural practices. 

The coffee is protected by natural shade cover, including the surrounding mountains and Pepeto trees. Pepeto trees also provide excellent nutrients and organic matter for the soil through leaves falling and decomposing during pruning. This is a natural processed coffee, which means that during harvest season, the coffee cherries (the fruit that contains the coffee bean) are picked from the trees at the optimal time for ripeness, and taken to the drying patio where they are separated into groups depending on the level of ripeness. From here the coffee is then dried inside the cherry with careful temperature monitoring to ensure the correct moisture level is maintained. 

We are extremely pleased to work directly with Tomas, having visited his farm in 2019, and look forward to supporting the continued expansion of his farm.
