El Salvador La Flor Coffee
Located on the charming colonial village of Ataco, El Divisadero is the place where Mauricio innovates and prepares all its coffees and microlots. This pacamara microlot comes from Maurico's diferent farms and it is fully washed processed.
The project led by Mauricio Salaveria which consists in bringing the coffees from his different farms (5 in total) together in one place to experiment with numerous processes and specific varieties. The coffee washing and drying station, located at the Villa Galicia farm, is particularly impressive. Mauricio prepares dozens of different coffees, each with its own unique characteristics. This group of farms is situated in a very beautiful region of El Salvador, known as The Flower Route. Mauricio is very careful to make optimum use of shade by employing an agroforestry model. Shade trees are very well suited to coffee production as they protect the soil and reduce water stress endured by coffee bushes in the dry season, hence promoting soil drainage. They are also excellent wind barriers, which are essential in this region for coffee trees to be able to grow.
