Pena Oscura — El Salvador

Tasting notes

Apple — Brown sugar  — Chocolate

José Ovidio Flores purchased his farm in 2005, when it was just a 50-cuerda parcel. He has spent the following decade-plus planting Caturra and Bourbon and expanding the area little by little by buying farmland from his neighbors. He grows coffee on about 95 percent of his 10 manzanas of land, and uses the remaining area for fruit-bearing trees like lemon.
He processes his coffees both Washed and Honey: This is a washed lot from the farm Finca Peña Oscura. Coffee is picked ripe, depulped and fermented dry for 12–16 hours, before being washed and dried on patios, which typically takes about two weeks.

Despite the growth to the size of his farm, José's annual production is still between 60–70 quintales, very small. Like most producers in this area of El Salvador, he says that he has had to deal with some coffee-leaf rust, but it is improving.
