San Carlos, El Salvador
San Carlos, in Santa Ana El Salvador, is a family estate owned by Ernesto Menendez and his brothers. Ernesto also owns the famed Las Brumas and La Illusion, both of which have earned many awards including Cup of Excellence presidential awards as well as World Barista Competition winners. Alejandro Mendez used Ernesto’s coffee to win the world barista competition in 2013, and Dale Harris used Las Brumas coffee to win in 2017.
Over the past several years, Elixr has purchased the washed Bourbon from San Carlos as a staple of our beekeeper and treehouse blends.
