El Salvador Valdivieso Farms El Portezuelo Caturra Black Honey
A single origin, single region, single estate, single variety coffee produced in the painstaking black honey process. A unique specialty coffee to say the least.
From the farms of our friend Julio Valdivieso; coffee history that transcends more than four generations back to the founding fathers of the Salvadorian Republic. Julio's coffee blends a rich history of coffee and politics with innovative agricultural and processing techniques.
While on a mission to check out the coffee seen in Taiwan, our friend Steven happened to meet Julio at a trade show in Taipei. The smell of delicious coffee led Steven to the stand were Julio was exhibiting his Specialty Coffees of El Salvador. Two Latins meet in Taipei... A friendship is sure to ensue. The Valdiviesos are remarkable people of culture and grit, the only thing better than their coffee is their friendship.
