The Contreras family has been growing coffee for 5 generations, collecting almost 100 years of family coffee experience. Rene Contreras and his family are deeply invested in their community, where his wife is a doctor who provides health care locally, and the family operates an animal sanctuary on the farm, taking in stray and neglected animals. This particular coffee comes from a region of the Monte Verda farm known as Los Cipreses. Keffa Coffee Importers partners closely with the Contreras' by visiting the farm regularly to ensure quality control and improvement.
The 36-hectare farm is only 93km from the capital city of San Salvador, outside the smaller city of Santa Ana. The mill employs 30 men year-round, then up to 150 men and women during the peak harvest season. This coffee has limited availability every year, and with Keffa's direct, person-to-person approach, it will continue to exceed expectations. We are proud to have sourced this beautiful coffee and to share it with you. In the cup we taste chocolate, roasted hazelnut and sweet cherry with nice round body.
From our house to yours, we hope you enjoy every sip!
