El Salvador, Finca San Jose
TASTES LIKE Strawberry Jam, Milk Chocolate & Roasted AlmondPROFILE Full & Balanced
With a lot of history behind this family owned farm, 4th generation Gloria, overseas other properties & mills with her extended family. For a few years now, Gloria has embarked on several experiments including varietal separation, this lot is her selection of red bourbon cherries only. Gloria normally performs 3 pickings at the farm between December and March.
We arranged the contract with Finca San Jose directly, determining a sustainable, profitable price for growing longevity. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price that we paid to Gloria for the dry milling, and within that, the Farmgate price - what was directly earned for coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, we then pay to ship the coffee to Melbourne (with Upstream), quality assess, roast (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retail it, adding significant costs & risk. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
