Getting product details...

From Rinaldo's Coffee:

Apaneca Llamatepequec is a mountain range in western El Salvador near the border of Guatemala. While mountainous, altitude rarely exceeds 1400 meters, but nevertheless, the region exhibits a number of attributes that lead to high quality coffee production. Notable landmarks include the beautiful town of Concepción de Ataco and ‘El Imposible’ national park.

El Salvador is an origin that has a natural tendency to produce sweet, versatile and sought after coffees from small, and generally progressive producers and was an early darling of the current speciality coffee movement. However, in 2013 the county was perhaps one of the hardest hit in Central America by the roya (leaf rust) outbreak and many farms produced negligible to nil coffee volume. However, diligent and progressive producers have generally rebounded well and are coming back with improved volume and quality.
