El Salvador

El Salvador can produce very good coffee. Bourbon varietal coffees are at one end of the spectrum, with a balanced, classic "Central" profile, a good alternative to Brazil as a base for espresso; Pacamara varietal coffees are their opposite, quirky and full of character. High altitudes and good, dense traditional varietals are a factor in the quality of El Salvador coffees. The country also produces an abundance of lower-grown coffee with fairly average cup quality.

No coffees are currently available from this origin. The review is our most recent offering, provided for reference.

This is a special 20 lbs sampler that consists of 4 different coffees, from Central and South America. With so many regions from these areas providing us with new crop coffees right now, it's a great opportunity for us to pass along variety and volume to our home roasters. Normally when you buy a 20 LB bag of coffee from us it has to be all one single origin or blend, so this is a nice way to split up some of that volume between a few different options. The sampler will consist of 4 origins: Colombia, Guatemala, Brazil, and El Salvador. Your coffee will ship in our regular mylar 5 LB zip bags, no fancy cloth bags like our full 20 LB bags. Due to the special pricing for this sampler we cannot honor special requests nor accept returns. Thanks. New crop Central American coffees are already here, and regions in South America are beginning to trickle in now. This means that we'll be working into new regions and lots as they arrive. And for now, here is an example of the lots you'll see included in this XL Sampler - Please keep in mind we will be doing the selecting and lots will come and go, but trust us, we'll pick 4 great lots along the lines of the following: Colombia Narino Buesaco Guatemalal Huehuetenango El Turbante El Salvador Finca Matalapa Bourbon Brazil Fazenda do Serrado PN Yellow Bourbon
