El Salvador, La Corriona Pacamara Natural espresso
£9.50 – £21.50
Strawberry & Cream
About this coffee: This exceptional 100% Pacamara lot was produced by Rafael Gerardo Caceres, owner of Finca Colombia, high in El Salvador’s famous Apaneca-Ilamtepec Mountain Range. It was processed using the Natural method at the renowned Borbollon Mill in Santa Ana. All lots are hand-picked and collected in traditional hand woven baskets from December through March by pickers who have been specially trained to select only the best and fully-mature coffee cherries.
La Corriona is a small plot of land (sometimes called a ‘tablón’ in El Salvador) inside Finca Colombia. The name (which, as far as we can tell, has no meaning in Spanish) was given to it by the original owners of the farm, the Caceres family. Finca Colombia was founded in 1916 by María Magaña Menéndez de Llanos and her husband, Francisco Antonio Llanos. Dr. Llanos (the husband) had migrated to El Salvador a few years before marrying. He brought with him a deep love for coffee farming from his native country, and this was the engine to found the farm.
