NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Few economies in Central America are as inextricably linked to coffea Arabica as El Salvador. It was introduced in the last part of the 19th century and dominated the landscape. By the 1970s, El Salvador was the world's 4th largest producer of coffee; remarkable considering the size of the country. However, politics and overdependence on coffee for economic growth led to periodic struggles that culminated in a civil war lasting from 1979 through to 1992. This period and the aftermath of the war also saw the country engage in significant land reform and redistribution, which broke up many of the country's large, traditional estates. Today, some 95% of the country's producers grow coffee on fewer than 20 hectares, and no single person can own more than 245 hectares.
The Balsamo de Quetzaltepec region produces some of that country's prized coffees year after year, and we're thrilled to offer a most unusual, full natural process Red Bourbon from Finca Loma La Gloria. The Bourbon varietal is especially well-represented in El Salvador, running close to 60% of plantings.
Today, owner Anny Ruth Pimentel runs Loma La Gloria mill to control the process, quality, and traceability of all the beans that pass through. Her father, Roberto, purchased the farm in the late 1990's and named it after his Grandfather's estate: Loma La Gloria. A civil engineer by trade and visionary businessman by nature, Roberto completed construction of the mill on the farm in 2001. Unfortunately, the mill was left abandoned upon completion, with Loma La Gloria's coffee cherries being sold to local mills.
In 2012 Anny Ruth took over the mill's operations and today the farm's coffee has earned an international reputation for quality in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Loma La Gloria is known for its carefully processed Honey and Natural coffees sorted by varietal. Loma La Gloria is located in the El Boquerón crater of the San Salvador Volcano. The farm's elevation ranges from 1200 to 1750 meters above sea level.
Shade trees cover much of Loma La Gloria and are home to many species of birds, including Blue jays, Chiltotas, Torditos, Guacalchias and Hummingbirds. The shade canopy helps control temperatures on the farm, maintaining the optimal climate to produce a desirable cup profile.
On a cupping table this coffee will give the best Ethiopian naturals a run for their money! Our light-medium roast evinces very sweet notes in the fruit family; cherry pie, baked apple, compote, as well as dark chocolate. Very special…drip and pourover recommended.
