Three words to describe this light roast are refined, fragrant and also buttery.  This full bodied variety begins and ends with sweet undertones of honey, herbal tea and chocolate. These coffee beans from El Salvador have a well-balanced finish that marks this light roast as a perfect complement to every fall morning.

Farm Friendly Direct:

In conjunction with the non-profit Trees for the Future, 15,000 shade trees were planted in the Apaneca coffee growing region in El Salvador. These trees were planted for shade and will provide a huge offset to carbon output. The canopy of these shade trees provide a cool habitat for birds and protect the coffee plants from too much rain or sun. Further, the mangoes and papaya from these trees provide the farmers with another source of income. For more information about our socially responsible Farm Friendly Direct Program, click HERE.
