JAVA Estate Jampit – From the Indonesian island of the same name, these crops were planted by the Dutch 300 years ago, in the 17th century. This coffee has a smooth, medium full–bodied, thick flavor. This Java is sourced from the Jampit Estate located on the island of Java, Indonesia. In the 17th Century Java coffee was first cultivated in low lying areas, but by the 19th Century coffee leaf rust had destroyed production, forcing new coffee cultivation into the highlands where high altitudes and volcanic soil provide perfect growing conditions.
EL SALVADOR Santa Leticia – Finca Santa Leticia was passed down to Ricardo Valdivieso during a time of great turmoil in El Salvador’s history. At the peak of the conflict in the 1980s, Ricardo came face to face with a firing squad in defense of his family’s land. He was not shot but spent many years in exile before he was able to return to Finca Santa Leticia. Over the decades, his career as a coffee producer has been challenged in just about every way you could imagine. Today, Ricardo works with his daughter, Monica, to protect and nurture their groves of Pacamara and Bourbon arabica. During the harvest, a great deal of care and focus is dedicated to picking the best quality of cherry and gently drying it on clay patios.
