Santa Matilde | El Salvador
Tasting Notes: Vanilla | Candy Apple | Creamy
Coffee from Santa Matilde is partially processed at Germania, the small mill within the farm, which has depulpers, washing equipment, and drying facilities. Santa Matilde pulps the freshly harvested cherries without water to retain all of the mucilage, then dries them on raised beds for up to 14 days to reach optimal conditions. Once dried, the coffee is stored at the El Carmens warehouse, where Santa Matilde coffee is dry milled and prepped for export.
Some coffees are also dried on the clay patio at El Carmens. Coffee dries faster on this hot surface, with Honey process coffees taking up to 14 days to dry here before being transferred to warehouse storage for the reposo resting period.
Santa Matilde has won much recognition for the quality of their coffees, including top placement in the El Salvador Cup of Excellence in 2018 and 2019. Their passion for providing excellent coffees drives them to innovate and develop great coffees and sustainability with their community.
