Jagong has been around continually for longer than just about any coffee we offer. We're preparing to bid it farewell, at least for a while.
Coffee Buyer & Quality Manager Tim Hill went to El Salvador in January with Head Roaster Jeff McArthur to visit Aida Batlle. Last week, Tim filed a compelling trip report on flickr that includes lots of information about both the challenges facing Central American coffee producers and the exciting experiments being done with Aida that may eventually surface in our Fall 2013 Work in Progress. Check out Tim's annotated photo set on flickr.
 
Thanks,
Nathan
