ALEJANDRO VALIENTE, METAPAN
In the Metapan region northern El Salvador, Alejandro Valiente, and a team of agronomists and farm managers, have put together a collection of 65 farmers to bring sustainable growing practices and premiums to their Bourbon and Pacas varieties. As part of a centuries old family company, Cafenor’s focus is on helping producers take care of the natural resources that are at the heart of their coffee business, including solar energy, tree planting, composting, and permaculture. Their project works directly with 67 producers for 100% traceability on each micro lot.
This washed coffee consists of 100% Pacamara variety. Big ol’ beans. They’re huge. It was grown at 1540 masl, milled on their on-site fully solar-powered dry mill, and drying is done on African beds to ensure quality.
