Background:

Microlot

Microlots from El Salvador are sourced from a group of smallholder producers located in the Chalatenango region, in the northern part of the country. Farms here are small on average (5–15 manzanas, or roughly 3.5–10.5 hectares) and many producers grow classic Salvadoran varieties such as Pacas and Pacamara as well as Bourbon.

Mauricio Salaverria

Finca Himalaya is a 60-hectare farm owned by Mauricio A. Salaverria, who also owns a farm called Finca Divisadero. This farm is located in a different mountain range than it's named for: the Apaneca Mountains in El Salvador's Ataco region. The Honey processed coffee on Mauricio's farm is picked ripe and dry fermented for 20 hours. It's dried on raised beds for 23 to 25 days. His farms are planted with Bourbon, Pacamara, and Maragogype varieties, as well as cypress, pine andinga shade trees.

The volcanic soil and use of shade create a very hospitable environment for the coffee, and Mauricio has developed his own systems for processing.
