Our 2nd release from Las Veraneras for 2022 is a naturally processed anaerobic coffee. The coffee cherries are harvested then fermented in an anaerobic environment for up to 36 hours. After which they are laid out to dry for 2-3 weeks. The resulting cup profile is incredible. Intensified sweetness and tasting notes of black currant, cacao, and strawberry shine through. Rich, complex, and downright delicious. This is one of our favorite coffees of 2022!
This 20 hectare farm run by Mr. Jorge Cruz Reyes is located in El Salvador’s Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range. Las Veraneras is one of the few farms in El Salvador to work with self-sustained biodynamic growing practices, producing their own composts, and natural fertilizers for plant nutrition. These agro-ecological farming practices yield healthy and sustainable harvests of specialty coffee, cacao, and honey (we have featured this honey for sale in our cafes). In the past year, these sustainable farming practices have produced coffees that earned accolades at specialty coffee competitions such as the “Cup of Excellence.” We’ve had the pleasure of sourcing this coffee directly from Jorge since 2019 and with each passing year it seems to only get better and better.
