Finca Himalaya is sweet and bright with dominant fruit flavors showcasing as tart cherries. This brightness is complimented by a vanilla custard note with touches of caramel that reminds us of crème brûlée. As the cup cools a spiced cocoa foundation comes forward with cinnamon and clove being the standout flavors.
Mauricio Salaverria owns multiple farms in the Apaneca Mountains. His family has been growing coffee since the 1890's, but he has earned a reputation all his own. His farms have a long history of success in the El Salvador Cup of Excellence, including multiple top 10 rankings.
We're very excited to feature this coffee for a second year. The Apaneca Mountains are the home of the second coffee farm Tony ever visited back in 2008. It was the coffees grown on these mountains where he first really began to understand the influence of a coffees specific growing conditions. Slight changes in elevation or a mountain face can have surprising influence on how the end cup tastes. While even neighboring farms are noticeably different, coffees from this mountain, as a whole, are very special to us.
