For the past six years we have bought coffee directly from a hand full of Mauricio Salaverria’s farms including Finca Himalaya. Mauricio’s farms are located just outside Apaneca in western El Salvador and are planted primarily with old stock Bourbon which produce a very elegant cup with lots of caramel sweetness. Most of what we buy each year is a wet processed selection milled at the El Divisadero mill and is a main component in our Stella espresso blend. This selection from Finca Himalaya however is a natural processed microlot of the Maragogype Variety. This large bean known as an Elephant Bean is a natural mutation of the Typica variety and was first discovered in Maragogipe, Bahia Brazil. This variety excels at 1500 m and above and matures slowly which is thought to contribute to its complex cup.

We roast and ship orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Orders placed after 8am on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be roasted and shipped on the next roast day.  We provide $5.00 flat rate priority mail with USPS for all orders.
