Coffee Profile

Fresh arrival 2023/2024 harvest! This is our third year purchasing coffee from Monte Verde. For the past two years this coffee scored 92 points with Coffee Review (links below), and we are eager to see how this coffee scores this year. 

We loved this coffee so much last season, that we upped our commitment to the producer for a third straight year! We roast this coffee on lighter side of the roast spectrum to preserve all of the delicious sweetness and acidity, but this coffee is not too delicate to be a daily drinker. If you are used to a more "medium" roast level, we think you will still really enjoy this coffee. A crowd pleasing every day drinker when prepared hot, but also one of our absolute favorite coffees when iced! 

The Contreras family has been farming coffee on the volcanic slopes of Monte Verde for 5 generations, collecting almost 100 years of family coffee experience. The 36-hectare farm is only 93km from the capital city of San Salvador, outside the smaller city of Santa Ana. The mill employs 30 men year-round, then up to 150 men and women during the peak harvest season.

The current owner-farmer Rene Contreras, has worked closely with our import partners over the years to improve quality control and processes. Rene and his family are deeply invested in their community, as his wife is a doctor who provides health care locally. We love this coffee for its milk chocolate sweetness and pleasing acidity.
