Description

This unique coffee comes from a female-owned farm whose owner is a third-generation coffee farmer.

Thelma de Gutierrez’s life has revolved around coffee ever since she was a young girl.

Her childhood was spent on her family’s coffee farm.

And it is due to all these happy memories of growing up on a coffee farm, she decided to purchase her own coffee farm, cementing her career as a third-generation coffee producer.

Thelma purchased her first farm – Finca Madre Tierra – in 2006.

In 2014, she purchased Finca Lemus, an adjacent plot.

The farms sit on the top of a hill in the Ilamatepec mountain range near the town of Ataco.

She chose the area intentionally, seeking to set down roots near Ataco, a town that has long been known for producing high-quality coffee.


El Salvador specialty coffee beans

About this coffee

During the harvest, all cherries are selectively handpicked to ensure high-quality coffee.

Ripe cherries are rested for 72 hours to allow light fermentation.

Then, the cherry is transported to Beneficio El Carmen, a dry mill in Concepcion de Ataco, Ahuachapan.

At the mill, the coffee is pulped on an Eco-pulper and laid, with its mucilage, on raised beds and patios where it sundries for 20 to 24 days.

Workers turn the drying parchment frequently to promote even drying.

This coffee is a Tabi varietal – honey processed.

Look for tastes of Snickers bar, brown sugar, and plum.
