A coffee from the highlands of El Salvador, the source of some world class coffees in the past few years. Those who grow this coffee suffered greatly from the civil war in El Salvador. Times continue to be difficult for these farmers due to the low prices of coffee, which is why the Fair Trade prices are so important. The coffee is organically grown under a rich canopy of shade trees, making the farms a sanctuary to many migratory birds and other endangered local species. The coffee has a rich flavor and fragrant aroma, with a pleasant earthiness and a hint of cocoa. We are committed to providing only Fair Trade certified green coffee. Purchasing Fair Trade guarantees the growers were paid a fair and living wage for the coffee they labored to produce. All of the green coffee we sell was purchased in small lots of only the best quality arabica beans. This green coffee must be roasted before it can be made into a coffee beverage. We recommend roasting with a home coffee roasting appliance such as the Freshroast Plus.
