The farmer of this excellent coffee is called Sigfredo Corado. He is a trained agronomist in El Salvador, which is usually not a high paid job. However, Corado was able to fulfill his dream by setting up a company together with 2 schoolmates that emigrated to the US and made some money there. The friends decided to buy a couple of farms in Ilamatepec and invested to raise the quality of the coffee produced. The farms are sizeable, very well fertilized, and cultivated by Mr. Corado who is an expert agronomist. The coffee variety grown is red bourbon. The high altitude and excellent washed processing help to create this excellent cup with notes of cacao nibs, green apple and stone fruit.
