About Santa Matilde

This is our first time offering coffee from Andres Acosta from his farm Finca Santa Matilde which is located in Concepcion de Ataco in the department of Ahuachapan. Santa Matilde is currently owned by fifth generation of coffee producers of the Ariz- Herrera family. 
Santa Matilde has been at the top in the El Salvador Cup of Excellence in 2018 and 2019. 

This coffee is full of fall flavor notes such as Plum, Apple, and spices, along with a nice honey sweetness. 

About The Region

From Ally Coffee, "

The Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range runs through the Ahuachapan, Santa Ana, and Sonsonate departments of northwestern El Salvador near the border with Guatemala. It was from Guatemala that the first coffee seeds entered El Salvador in the late eighteenth century. Coffee production in El Salvador began in these mountains, eventually spreading to other parts of the country.

The Apaneca-Ilamatepec Biosphere Reserve was declared by UNESCO in 2007. This Biosphere Reserve includes forest plantations, coffee plantations, grassland, and crops. There are 12 species of endangered flora and 58 threatened species, as well as 12 endemic species of birds and other animals protected here."
