Las Mercedes, El Salvador
Welcoming back for a beautiful coffee from an amazing producer and friend Lucia Ortiz! Finca Las Mercedes is a former Cup of Excellence winning farm, from which we have the pleasure of buying at Elixr since 2011.
This particular lot's seeds actually came via Guatemala from an equally famed farm "finca El Socorro" (which some may remember from our release of the maracaturra last year. The beans themselves are incredibly large because they are a hybrid from the maragogype variety. Even though this is a natural processed coffee, it cups incredibly clean and sweet with notes of Asam Tea, Black Currant, and Brown Sugar
Region: Cerro El Tigre
Altitude: 2000 meters
We taste: Asam Tea, Black Currant, Brown Sugar
