El Salvador La Concordia

El Salvador La Concordia

£8.00

A washed bourbon, with creamy, rich milk chocolate and sweet, juicy concord grapes that lend their name to "La Concordia" farm, now run by Carlos Antonio Borja Letona. The family have been growing coffee here  50 years and some of the coffee trees are 100 years old and grow right up to the crater of the volcano, known locally as “El Boqueron”. The soil is so rich you can easily sink your hand and half your arm into the ground.

Full bodied, sweet and velvety body, characterised by milk chocolate, raisin and concord grapes. Gentle, but notable red apple acidity.

The growing region is 40 minutes drive from San Salvador comprising of 150 acres, at an altitude of 1400 metres above sea level at Canton San Juan Los Planes part of La Libertad Department. The San Salvador volcano last erupted in 1917 causing a lake inside El Boqueron to evaporate leaving a cinder cone and a large crater. The resulting area enjoys a micro-climate which is cool and temperate throughout the year with cool nights, warm sun filtered through the shade trees and gentle rains.

Production is carefully hand-picked, separating the mature red berries from the few yellow or green ones - the resulting in perfectly ripe "Rubyberries" to produce consistently good coffee year after year.
