El Salvador Finca La Fany Washed Bourbon

El Salvador Finca La Fany Washed Bourbon

Rafael and Carmen De Silva were the first producers I ever met in El Salvador, and Finca La Fany was the first farm I ever visited in El Salvador. This is a relationship that goes all the way back to 2003, and I consider this to be a real foundation stone coffee for Hasbean. Finca La Fany has been producing coffee in El Salvador since 1870, and it's belonged to the same family from generation to generation. Situated on the Santa Ana volcano, the farm provides work for 24 families in the community. It's in a biological corridor that stretches...

Bolivia Finca El Fuerte Washed Geisha

Bolivia Finca El Fuerte Washed Geisha

Finca El Fuerte was named in honour of the 'Fort of Samaipata', which is a unique ruin in Bolivia. El Fuerte de Samaipata (Fort Samaipata), also known simply as 'El Fuerte', is a pre-Columbian archaeological site. It's unique in that it represents the legacies of Inca, Spanish and Chanè cultures, and it's one of Samaipata's main attractions. Situated in the eastern foothills of the Bolivian Andes, in the Santa Cruz department of Florida province, the archaeological site is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. El Fuerte was a first experiment in developing coffee in a region with excellent characteristics for...

Brazil Ipanema Fazenda Rio Verde Premier Cru B65 Peach

Brazil Ipanema Fazenda Rio Verde Premier Cru B65 Peach

The Ipanema estates have been innovating in Brazilian coffee for many years now, and they've become well known for consistent quality. The producers visited the UK earlier this year to share their latest project, and we were lucky enough that they came to visit us at the roastery.  This farm is a little larger and more organised than those of some of the other producers we buy from, but the Ipanema producers are no less passionate, and they wanted to share their new project – Premier Cru – with us. Fazenda Rio Verde was founded in 1887 and is the...

Bolivia Vincent Paye Washed Caturra

Bolivia Vincent Paye Washed Caturra

A couple of years back we had a lot that was produced by various smallholder farmers from the small town of Copacabana, which lies about 180 kilometres from La Paz in the heart of the Caranavi coffee-producing region. Then in 2016 things changed a little and it came from just one producer in the area, whose name is Vincent Paye. That year I described him as a beacon of hope in a tough growing region, and that beacon has continued to shine brightly. Caranavi is a lush and fertile region with steep slopes and valleys providing excellent conditions for growing high-quality coffee, while...

Guatemala El Limon Washed Caturra

Guatemala El Limon Washed Caturra

I first discovered El Limon on my trip to Guatemala in early 2013. At the time we'd never bought coffee directly from Guatemala, but since then this has become one of our strongest and most amazing Hasrelationships. My friend Raul (whom you may remember as the World Barista Champion of 2012!) in Guatemala had been buying coffee from these guys for a couple of years, and he was very keen for me to go and meet them. Located around an hour's drive to the east of Guatemala City in the small town of Palencia, this farm sits at an altitude...
