This morning I’ve got Archer Farms’ El Salvador Buena Vista in my cup. They describe it as a “well-rounded cut featuring chocolate, citrus and toasted almond notes.”
This is a light roast coffee, and it is a direct trade coffee. This coffee was grown in Ahuachapan, El Salvador. The grower is the Menendez Family. They sun dry their beans. All of this makes for a great cup of coffee. The aroma is awesome and the taste is very good. This is one of the better light roast coffees I have had.
A little bit about the direct trade aspect. They pay fair prices for better quality beans. This incentivizes the farmers and gives them the means to produce coffee using good farming practices. Direct trade, as opposed to fair trade, provides a direct partnership and investment with farms in the region. An economic boost for the region and some awesome coffee.
I give this 4 out of 5 cups.
A side note, Archer Farms supports children in the region as well through Save The Children.
