El Salvador Las Nubes Coffee

The coffees from the Salaverria family are some of our all time favourites and this marks the seventh consecutive year we have purchased coffee processed at their Las Cruces mill. Versatile, smooth and sweet, Las Nubes is a small selection of Red Bourbon and perfectly suited to a trusty Aeropress, cafetiere or batch brew.

Las Nubes is a unique plot separation within the much larger San Francisco estate. Set on the mountain range of Apaneca Ilamatepec, San Francisco is one of the JASAL groups 3 farms with all harvested cherries then delivered into their central processing mill, Las Cruces.

Here the coffees are meticulously sorted and each lot is traceable to unique hillsides and sectors of the farm. We last visited back in 2016 and were amazed at this methodical approach to processing whilst still managing an impressive volume.

Now into their 6th generation of coffee history, the JASAL daily operations have always been a family affair and are now overseen by brothers Jose Antonio and Andres Salaverria. Their commitment to community initiatives is an obvious part of maintaining their loyal full time staff with education, housing and free healthcare offered. In a time when many producers are struggling with leaf rust and profitability, the Salaverria’s are also investing in environmental measures with much of their production Rain Forest Certified and organic fertilisers used to regenerate their farms.

Picked at an intensely red ripeness these red bourbon cherries are then honey processed with beans pulped from their cherry and then transferred straight to drying beds with a thin coating of fruity mucilage still intact. Dried over the following two weeks the resulting coffee is comparatively cleaner than a natural with a more intense body than washed versions. With smooth tasting notes of cocoa butter, apricot and praline we think this finds the perfect balance.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
