Strawberry, apple, and melon

In the cup: A fruity cup bursting with flavours of lightly macerated strawberry, apple acidity, and juicy ripe rockmelon. A tropical bouquet upfront with a heavier creamy body and super sweet finish.

The producer: The mountainous township of Santa Rosa is home to some 250 smallholder farmers who contribute to this stunning El Boqueron coffee

Harvesting window: The window for harvesting this El Boqueron coffee is from December to February with all coffee being harvested in this tight window as a built-in measure to ensure coffee is picked at its peak ripeness.

Simplicity in ensuring quality: The harvesting of this El Boqueron lot relies on simple transparent practices and selective picking at just the right time of year. Smallholder farmers also bring their cherry to the wet mill in one delivery, ensuring only the most evenly ripe coffee is picked and uniformity across the entire crop is guaranteed. This may sound simple, but it is incredibly valuable as even ripeness and uniformity determine controlled drying, even roasting, and balanced extraction.

Certification: The mill which processes coffee in this region is Rainforest Alliance Certified and farmers and mill operators have seen positive change from this certification. Community benefits have resulted in the installation of a water treatment facility. We love it when a coffee that tastes this good also does good for its people and its community.
