flavors: CARAMEL - TANGERINE - COCOA
ideal for: ESPRESSO/LATTÉ and FILTER/POUROVER
PRICE PAID DIRECTLY TO MAURICIO
We paid Mauricio $3USD/lbs directly for this lot.
To put this price into context, a grower in El Salvador would need to receive a minimum of $2.00USD/lbs to support himself and his family.
At the time of our purchase in the spring of 2022, Mauricio would have received $2USD/lbs if he had sold his coffee to the regional cooperation and a maximum of $1.70USD/lbs if he had sold his coffee under Fair Trade certification.
MAURICIO AND OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM
Mauricio and I have had a close relationship for four years, and now for three years I have been buying four different batches directly from him to showcase his coffee growing skills.
He managed to finish ten times in the top 25 of the Cup of Excellence, a competition highlighting the best coffees in El Salvador.
He is the fifth generation to take over the reins of family coffee plantations, and the very first generation to embark on specialty production.
Perfectly balanced, packed with lots of sugar and hints of dark cherry, caramel and hazelnut, this batch of Mauricio pairs beautifully with any type of milk. He is your everyday friend and will please everyone.
