Finca El Molino is located in the Ahuachapan department of El Salvador. El Molino is one of the oldest farms that the Salaverria family owns. The cherries are not processed on the farm like Guadalupe, but rather taken to Beneficio Las Cruces, a processing mill for the Salaverria family. This is where the cherries are de-pulped and dried under sun on clay patios. The combination of high quality varietals, good agricultural practices, immaculate cherry selection, and good processing techniques results in the sweet, rich, creamy and balanced cup of El Molino. A classic coffee from Central America, this cup can be enjoyed by everyone whether old or new to the specialty world.
