El Salvador produces some very tasty coffees indeed. High grown estates, in tropical conditions, amongst semi active volcanic regions create an unparalleled habitat for coffee. Beans mature fairly quickly here, and as a result the bean structure is fairly soft, and quick to roast! The subtle acidity and simple flavours that come from El Salvador make this loveable and highly drinkable coffee.
Finca El Ingenio dates back to 1875 when Mr. Juan Urrutia planted the first coffee tress at high altitude in volcanic soil and the first crop of 27 bags was produced.
Sixth-generation Enrique, Rene and Gustavo run the farm, with their father Gustavo still involved as an advisor.
All the Urrutias Estate coffees are 100% shade grown and native trees are planted every year to prevent erosion.
A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the farm is unsuprisingly Rainforest Alliance certified and is home to many resident and migratory birds.
The coffee is washed and placed into a wet fermentation tank before progressing to the drying stage, which is split between guardiolas and patios depending on the weather, need, and volume of cherry being delivered to the mill.
