This coffee is grown in the soft, volcanic clay of Mauricio Salaverria’s, ‘Finca Himalaya’ in the region of Apaneca, El Salvador. Coffee has been grown on this farm since 1875, with the reputation as the first ‘specialty coffee’ farm in the small Central American country. The #5 (or Mambo #5) lot is a ‘Cuzcatleco’ varietal lot, which is an F1 hybrid; a first generation varietal after cross-breeding between two different coffee varietals.
This F1 hybrid is sweet, floral and leaves us wanting another cup. Dark fruit notes such as black cherry and plum are accompanied by a hibiscus note, which is present in both the aroma and finish.
