From high in the mountains of El Salvador comes this Direct Trade, micro-lot, El Salvador Finca Montes Urales. Grown on a family farm in volcanic soils at altitudes between 4,500 and 5,300 feet above sea level, this delicious gourmet coffee is full of complex flavours.
The beans at Finca Montes Urales are hand-harvested and sorted, washed, and dried in the sun on raised beds. As a direct trade farm, the farmers, their families, and the community benefit directly from the sale of their coffee beans. As a micro-lot, this coffee crop comes from a very small area, meaning that the flavour isn't mixed with other coffees from the rest of the country. It's the purest local coffee you can get without visiting the farm yourself! It is truly farm-to-cup.

A complex yet balanced coffee with a hint of creamy orange, cherries, and a pleasantly sweet finish. You've never experienced El Salvador like this!
Even within a country, every patch of soil is different and yields its own locally unique batch of coffee. A micro-lot is a coffee crop that comes from a very small area, meaning that the flavour isn't mixed with other coffees from the rest of the country. It's the purest local coffee you can get without visiting the farm yourself! It's even Rainforest Alliance Certified, so you know that every sale helps conserve our rainforests.
