    San Carlos El Salvador

    San Carlos team

    Started in 1979 Cooperativa Cafetalera was made possible by the Agrarian Reforms implemented that same year. Located in the Department of Morazan, in the North-Eastern corner of El Salvador bordering Honduras.

    From 2000 the Coop no longer relied on government funding and began to generate a profit from their increasing international exports. The increased availability of capital has allowed them to further invest in the community by building schools and improving the coffee collection facilities.

    The Co op

     

    Aerial View

    The co op is trying very hard to build their export market. Through our staff based
    in Honduras Falcon could build a trading relationship with San Carlos, enabling
    them to send coffee to England for the first time. Something they are very
    excited about

    Cheries

    The Particular lot is their top quality coop lot. Their in-house cupper evaluated every lot that comes through the mill. Grading happens through green assessment and cupping with quality bands decided by cup score. The lot is an SHG 84+ cup score. They also market 82-84 and 80-82 cup score bands.

     The 300 Member farmers cultivate 847 Manzanas of coffee at altitudes between 1100m & 1665masl. Varieties consist mainly of Bourbon’s, Pacas and some Caturra.

    Preferred Preperation Which is the best way to prepare coffee? We have no prescribed brewing method for individual coffees, since their characteristics remain. Plunger/French Press is the purest form of consuming coffee as it shows up all traits, good and bad. Espressos tend to mask certain impurities as this is a fast, creamy, romantic extraction. Adding milk changes the taste but 95% of coffee is drunk with milk. Whatever tastes good for you is all that counts. Our coffee comes in 250g pouches with clear front (to show off the quality of our beans) and metallic back. Pouches have zip locks for your convenience Since we roast daily only the amount of coffee we sell, so you are assured of freshness. We use roasting date labels in stead of sell-by dates Coffee has a half life of 2 weeks. After two months the oils start going rancid and your coffee has reached the end of its life. Your old coffee grinds can be tossed into the compost. Tips to ensure a delicious cup So now that you have chosen a good quality coffee, remember that there are still a number of ways to really mess up your final cup. Here are a few more boxes to tick: • Always use fresh clean water. • Store coffee in an airtight container and consume within 2 months. • Do not boil your water and definitely never ever re-heat brewed coffee. • Use clean equipment.
