This is another coffee from Ernesto Menendez of La Ilusion fame. Ernesto bought this farm in 2009 but the Kenyan variety SL28 has been grown at Los Andes for over 60 years after the previous owner went on a coffee hunting trip. Normally it was mixed with the Bourbon, but this year we will have both varieties to try separately.
