This beautiful, fully washed, sun-dried coffee brings out elegant aromas of honey, caramel and walnut with hints of rose. When tasting, on first sip we found this to be a sweet, mild coffee with moderate complexities followed by a mellow milk chocolate after taste. A genuinely luxurious coffee to be drunk throughout the day like an afternoon tea.
The Santa Leticia Estate has been run by the Valdivieso family for generations high in the Apaneca-llamatepec mountains in the North West of El Salvador. It was the current owner, Ricardo Valdivieso's great grandfather, who purchased the farm in 1870 and named it after his wife, Leticia. A lot of love and knowledge goes into this coffee.
Grown at a height of 1200-1750 metres above sea level, the farm is also an archaeological site, complete with Mayan artefacts.
