El Salvador Los Cipreses
This is the second coffee that we have purchased from Rene Contreras, after falling in love with his Monte Verde the past two seasons. His neighboring farm, Los Cipreses, did not disappoint also scoring 92 points from Coffee Review in September of 2023. "A harmonious, floral and chocolaty washed El Salvador with especially inviting acidity, juicy and bright." (Coffee Review)
The Contreras family has been farming coffee on the volcanic slopes of Monte Verde for five 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.
