This coffee comes to us from Mapache Coffee, a fifth-generation company of coffee producers, owned and managed by Jan-Carlo and Sofia Handtke in the Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range of El Salvador. Mapache employs over 125 locals year-round, but during harvest season, their staff swells to 600 people who work together to build coffee nurseries, replant at the companies' six farms, and process the perfectly ripe cherries that come from them. Mapache maintains a strong commitment to the well-being of the coffee forests, ensuring that every farm has a canopy protecting the coffee plants and soil. Their modern wet mill uses limited amounts of water during the washing process, then recycles and reuses that water in the same process. All the remaining pulp from the wet milling process is incorporated back into the farms as compost, returning key nutrients to the soil.
This coffee was hand-picked from Mapache farm Finca El Naranjito, in the picturesque town along “la ruta de las flores” called Concepción de Ataco, Ahuachapán. This farm sits at an elevation of 1400 meters above sea level overlooking the Pacific Ocean and this honey-processed lot is comprised of the coveted pacamara coffee variety. Look for flavors that include honey-nut cherrios, mango and a cocoa powder finish.
