El Salvador: Edition 22.029 - 125g
Finca La Fany
*Please note - this coffee is sold in 125g bags, not our regular 250g*
This lot is Orange Bourbon, a natural mutation of Red Bourbon which ripens to a deep orange colour. It's always tricky with a coffee which ripens a different colour to get only the ripe cherries picked. They need to educate the pickers about what a ripe fruit looks like, with the colour change between a little under ripe and perfectly ripe being less in an orange fruit than in a red fruit - to make sure this happens, the farm manager will pick a small group of the best pickers to collect a lot like this.
The coffee is processed as a natural at their mill, San Pedro, a super clean and well organised place. Rafael Jr is in charge of that and he's got a real knack for delicate and balanced processing. It really helps that their mill is the highest one in El Salvador (!) - this means temperatures don't get as hot as in other parts and the fermentation is slow and even.
A big, gloopy coffee - it's like a melted chocolate orange, with juicy sultana on the end. There's a prune note which comes through more as the cup cools and a dark chocolate edge to the aftertaste.

Medium – keep it light enough to get the complex sweetness, before second gets going, but give it some good development time in the gap too to highlight the fruit and sweet caramelised notes.

That’s right - once you’re finished, you can bung your 125g or 250g bag straight into your compost heap at home and watch it give back to the earth. The image above shows a 250g bag after just 3 weeks on a compost heap.
Being uncompromising on quality means being uncompromising with freshness. Roasted to order, every day of the working week. That’s a promise.
