The rise of specialty coffee in El Salvador has inspired many producers to start to identify and isolate individual varieties, and to experiment with sorting and processing, as a way of attracting buyers and getting higher prices, but access to those resources can still be difficult for smaller growers

Finca La Benedición took 2nd place in the 2015 El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition, and the quality shown in the lots from here easily illustrates why it placed so high. Producer Ismael Flores grows mostly Pacamara, Bourbon, and Pacas on the 8 acres of Finca La Benedición, and he processes his coffees as Washed and Honeys, paying meticulous attention to his processes and displaying his passion for coffee. This washed coffee was picked, depulped, fermented dry for 14–18 hours, and then dried for 13–20 days on patios. 

Please note that orders must be received by Wednesday noon (central time) in order to ship by the end of the week
