Alexander has been creating specialty coffee on his small farm for only three years. He’s only been a coffee producer for a few years longer than that. He’s worked hard learning everything that goes into making delicious coffees like this, including the honey processing method. This means the coffee is pulped without water, leaving some of the fruity flesh on the coffee bean, before being dried on raised beds. Honey processed coffees are somewhere between natural and washed, usually with a higher acidity than a natural but with its full sweetness. For a lot of people, it’s a Goldilocks coffee.

El Salvador is one of the oldest countries in Latin America to grow coffee.The history of the country is deeply entwined with coffee. The oligarchs who owned most of the land in the country built most of their wealth through coffee and exploiting indigenous and poor citizens of El Salvador. This concentration of wealth led to 14 families effectively owning the vast majority of wealth in the nation. The 14 families who built their wealth on coffee have developed into the 8 largest business groups who operate in El Salvador.
