San Felipe is one of this producers best performing farms over time. It is in high altitudes being El Salvador and the trees on the farm always look amazing. It's planted with different types of Bourbon, and are located in steep hillsides.
The most impressive thing with coffees from Salaverria is the overall quality of picking: deep blood red and uniform color. Considering the volumes they are doing in total it is pretty amazing.
The coffees are for the most part processed based on trials and adjustments we made at the wet mill. They are using eco pulpers called Jotagallo that are doing about 80% mechanical demucilaging. Their standard procedure is to take the parchment from the pulpers directly to the patio for drying. Nordic Approach has decided to soak most of their purchased coffees over night for 10 hours after pulping as they believe it will make the coffee even more elegant.
The coffees are then dried on clay patio up to 15 days or on drying beds in sun or under shade.
