Relationship Since: 2010
We first met Emilio back in 2010 on our first trip to El Salvador. We have had the privilege to watch him grow from a humble coffee farmer to a Cup of Excellence winner! Emilio is part of an elite group of farmers who have unravelled and mastered the art of natural process coffees. Breaking traditions and using cutting edge innovation and modern farmer techniques with an unbelievable amount of hard work, he has been producing exceptional coffees year after year. We are so proud of his phenomenal achievements and feel honored to have this very special SL28 to present to you this year. SL28 is a very rare African varietal to be found in El Salvador, so you are in for a treat!
This year Emilio also has released a SL34 Honey and an Orange Bourbon Natural that are also for sale, until sold out.
How to drink: Just like you wouldn't add soda your best whiskey, this amazing coffee is meant to be drank black with no sugar or cream.
Roasting days: Proud Mary roast Monday-Friday during normal business hours. To ensure freshness of coffee, best to order early in the week as postal services and couriers do not operate on weekends.
Orders: placed by 8.30am PST will be roasted and dispatched the same day. If you are ordering on a Friday, and order after 8.30am then your coffee will be roasted the following business day - Monday.
