This is the coffee that started the relationship between our buyer Steve Leighton and farmer Ernesto Menéndez back in 2007, when it placed in the top ten of the Cup of Excellence. This small farm sits high on the Santa Ana volcano, and is kept to Ernesto's usual exemplary standards. Expect a very balanced cup with lots of caramel sweetness matched with shining acidity.
