El Salvador Cuzcachapa Coffee

The Cuzcachapa cooperative is situated North of El Salvador's Ilamatepec volcano, in the South West of the country. Growing from having 56 members when it was established in 1966, to over 1200 members today, the mill is now the largest cooperative mill in El Salvador.

The Cuzcachapa cooperative is situated North of El Salvador's Ilamatepec volcano, in the South West of the country. 

The cooperative has a wide-reaching impact in the community at large, with a medical clinic, hardware store and gas station to serve the group's members. In addition, Cuzcachapa mill supports the local Santa Elenita school, which teaches around 40 children. Farmers in the group are supported with agronomy training, and the mill also takes care of a certified nursery of coffee varietals, including Castillo, Catimor and Sarchimor.

Cuzcachapa does the basics perfectly: nutty and chocolatey, with a great body and sweetness - the sort of coffee that's great to have around for any occasion. Whether you're using it as espresso or filter, it's got you covered.

Ripe coffee cherries are picked, and sorted to remove any defects. They then pass through a depulper, where the flesh of the cherry is removed, leaving behind a sticky mucilage layer. Next, the beans are fermented, and the mucilage layer breaks down, leaving a clean coffee bean behind. The beans are then carefully dried, resulting in a clean-tasting coffee with natural sweetness and complexity.

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.
