Finca El Salvador has been in the Ruffatti Batlle family for five generations. Rodolfo, who is representing the new generation has embarked on a mission to introduce new varieties as well as advanced processing methods to the family farm. He also collaborates with neighboring farmers by sharing his knowledge on processing techniques and exporting their products.
Rodolfo is a fermentation specialist. FES farm is situated on top of Cerro el Aguila mountain and was traditionally planted with Bourbon variety. The altitude allows special varieties to form distinct cup qualities and Rodolfo has planted Rume Sudan, Kenya, SL-28, and Tabi among others.
With the existing Bourbon, he has experimented with anaerobic fermentation where the coffee cherry is fermented in an oxygen-free tank before being moved to the drying beds. This enables aromatic compounds from the skin to absorb to the mucilage and finally to the bean. He has also successfully introduced controlled bacteria communities such as kombucha and water kefir to the fermentation process otherwise hard to control.
This coffee is made with love from the very beginning in order to bring you joy.
We hope you enjoy it.
