Our Origin Select coffee this month comes from the Morazan region of El Salvador. This coffee has a creamy body, medium acidity, and caramelized sugar sweetness.
Morazan, an area of ancient forests, has a long history of coffee cultivation. In the indigenous language spoken there, “Lenca” means “The Land of Abundant Water.” The bounty of fresh water from the El Rio Grande de San Miguel, the fertile land and the high altitudes create “cloud forests,” which protect the plants from extreme weather.
The community in Lenca is working to maintain forest-shade tree growth and fend off encroaching deforestation by growing coffees that command a higher premium.
We hope you will enjoy this new selection in our ongoing Origin Select series of coffees that explores different coffee growing regions, farms, and processes. We roast our Origin Select series in-house, guaranteeing you get the freshest roast possible.
