This beautiful shade grown coffee is produced by a small group of 45 small holders in the region of Chalatenango (got a ring to it right?). In fact, it’s grown in the Montecristo Trifinio, a tri-border national park shared by El Salvador, Guatemala & Honduras. Our partners on the ground established a dry mill and lab close by in early 2015 with a view to helping growers in the region achieve their goals of growing better, more consistent coffees and more of them. We’re very excited for the future of this little area, it produces some really incredible coffees, this being one of them..
