El Salvador Cafè Pacas Sapphire Blend Washed

SAPHIRE BLEND is achieved by blending washed processed coffee cherries of 4 different farms. 2 of them are located at the Cerro Verde Volcano and the other 2 at Ilamatepec Volcano. These 4 farms are all SHG farms. They produce exceptional quality coffees. Coffee Cherries are carefully picked at the farm. Any underripe, dry or green cherries are removed from the batch.  The coffee cherries are transported to our mill Vivagua where pulpers remove the red skin from the cherries.  This red skin is called the “pulp”, and it is very rich in nutrients.  The pulp is dried at the mill, and every week it is moved back to the farm, where it is used as fertilizer for the trees.  
To achieve washed coffee, the parchment coffee goes into the fermentation tanks for 8-10 hours.  Time may vary depending on the outside humidity and temperature.  When the parchment has released all of the mucilage, it is washed and taken to the patios to dry.   
These layers of coffee are moved 5-8 times each day, every day.  At night, the coffee is piled up into small batches and covered with yute bags to protect it from dew or unexpected rains.


The humidity of the coffee is measured every day. Once it reaches 12%, the coffee is packed into yute bags and stored in the warehouse in a spot that is previously assigned in order to preserve traceability.
The time it takes for the parchment coffee to reach the desired humidity can be 8-10 days. 

Aromatic notes: citric aroma with notes of molasses, creamy body, refined acidity, chocolate flavor and a long, clean aftertaste.
