A Blend from the Caceres family and from Gustavo Alfonso Jimenez.
The Caceres family has been cultivating Finca Las Mañanitas for over 150 years. The current owners' great-great-great-grandfather, Fabio Morán purchased the land in the mid-1800s.
Mama Tita and Papa Ricardo, the parents of the current owner, Rosa Marta Erazo from Caceres, continued the family tradition of cultivating the land. Mama Tita was born near Finca Las Mañanitas and inherited the farm from her father, Papa Manuel. Papa Manuel was the first to plant coffee trees on the farm. Papa Ricardo, Mama Tita's husband, is well known in the family for his love of coffee culture and his dedication to his craft. “He was born with a passion to grow the best coffee,” his children say. He passed away in 2010 but his children continue his legacy of growing delicious coffees.
The farm is named after the song Las Mañanitas, which is the local version of the song Happy Birthday. Nowadays, it is a tradition to often play this song on the farm.
The Santa Ana and Izalco volcanoes are visible from Finca Las Mañanitas. The volcanoes have deposited volcanic silt which provides plenty of nutrients for the coffee trees to thrive.
This fully washed batch of Gustavo Alfonso Cuéllar Jiménez at Finca El Potala has a balanced body that is underlined by honey sweetness and a balanced raspberry and plum flavor.
Gustavo Alfonso Cuéllar Jiménez owns and operates Finca El Potala. The farm is named after the Potala Palace, the Dalai Lama's winter palace in Tibet's Lhasa Valley. Like its namesake, Finca El Potala is located in a mountainous region and sits in the middle of the Cerro Apaneca mountains. Gustavo worked as an advisor to the Tibetan government on geothermal energy. He has also worked with the Guatemalan government on a geothermal power plant in the Apaneca/Ahuachapan region.
The Cuéllar family has been growing coffee in the Ahuachapan region for over 3 generations. Today, Gustavo continues his tradition of growing high-quality coffees at Finca El Potala.
Finca El Potala s is located 1,300 meters above sea level in Ahuachapan, El Salvador. The farm is planted with Pacas, Bourbon, Cuscatleco and Bourbon Rouge in this lot.
Coffee grows in the shade of trees. Gustavo also built a windbreak maze of tall native plants to protect the coffee trees. The farm is home to migrating birds and a multitude of other species and helps to protect and renew the soil.
The cherry is selectively picked by hand and processed on the farm. The ripe red cherry is put out to dry. The icing is raked frequently to ensure even drying.
