Getting product details...

The Fields is our adventurous single origin espresso, showcasing the provenance of the coffee. Also well suited to filter methods.

Process: Well-trained pickers are given good incentives to select ripe cherries only. The coffee is brought down to the patios at the El Molino mill for sundrying. The mill is only used for production of natural sundried coffees. The coffee is spread out in a medium layer at clay patios. They are moved and turned every hour the first days, then every second hour for a day and gradually with longer intervals as the coffee is getting more stable and the moisture goes down The process is monitored closely to avoid any unwanted over fermentation. Drying: Sun dried on clay patio 13 - 18 days.

This is part of a project with an El Salvadorian producer, Jose Antonio Salaverria and his family. He has three large pieces of land with coffee production around the Santa Ana volcano in El Salvador. The coffees are all processed at their central mill, Las Cruces, that’s owned by the same family. Their coffee growing areas consist of a great number of farms he has inherited or bought over the last few years, but up until now they have not separated the coffees according to the different farms.

They have separated out 10 small farms and blocks where they will do extensive work on quality, and Guadalupe is one of them. This is part of a long-term project where Nordic Approach will partner with the producer to optimize quality. It’s done by changing the processing and drying methods as well as increase the lot traceability and separation.

Notes: The coffee is from a block at El Molino, the “tablon” Buena Vista”. The soil, weather conditions, varietals and altitude all contribute to the uniqueness of the product. The climate is dry and suitable for this type of production. The producer is known to be innovative in ways of processing and farming. He started years ago to experiment with producing naturals, and is still developing new and better ways to improve the cup.
