Finca El Salvador
Arriving from Italy in the 1920s, Luigi Risso had grand plans to open an espresso bar in San Salvador. Quickly, his heart lead him away from the bright lights of the city and up into the coffee-growing hills of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range. It was here he founded Finca El Salvador.
A century and five generations on, Luigi's great-great-grandson Rodolfo Ruffatti is at the helm. Taking over full-time management of the farm in 2020 after his father's retirement, Rodolfo has set about splitting the farm into 50% micro-lot and exotic varietals, 50% high volume pulped natural and natural lots.
Rodolfo's work is producing really exceptional coffees, over the past few years we've a number of beautiful lots. This latest coffee is a blend of naturally sweet Bourbon varietals that has a flavour profile full of citrus fruits and vanilla.
