Thanks to coffee producer Aida Batlle's persistent quality focus, meticulous picking and sorting, and expert processing, Finca Mauritania from Santa Ana, El Salvador, continues to be among our all-time favorites. We offer this year's harvest of Finca Mauritania with pride, respect, and gratitude. And, we hope that you enjoy Finca Mauritania as much as we do with its perfect balance of sweetness and brightness, notes of sweet pastry, and a hint of fruit over a light and creamy body. And, again, this year's harvest arrived earlier than ever before!
Buying coffee from the Productores Indígenas de la Sierra Chiapaneca (PROISCH) cooperative in 2010 allowed us to realize our long-held desire to explore the coffees from small-scale producers in Chiapas, Mexico. Farmhouse and Apollo benefited greatly that first year from PROISCH's quality and provided the perfect showcase for this coffee. Since then, we visited the co-op for the first time and worked on quality initiatives – and then visited the co-op again. Having overcome some challenges along the way, we're finally able to offer caffeinated coffee from PROISCH as a single-origin coffee called Las Milpas. We hope that you'll agree that this harvest's notes of vanilla, fig, and nougat were worth the wait.
