Salvador Santos Martinez

Regular price

Salvador Santos Martinez coffee is the product of pure passion. Around 2008, not satisfied with the commercial grade coffees that he was producing, though lacking in technical assistance and access to the specialty market, Salvador planted new varieties, which have had a lot of success over the past few years. We're proud to partner with a producer as motivated and creative as Salvador, and are very happy to share this delicious honey process coffee. In the cup, we taste pear and dark chocolate with a smooth, silky body.

Salvador's farm, Finca El Jutal, produces basic grains, vegetables, poultry, wild blackberries, peaches, and livestock, and for over 20 years, coffee. Due to his investment in and decision to plant newer specialty varieties, he has had success producing high quality coffees over the past few years, gaining the attention of his neighbors who have begun to follow in his footsteps. There are many challenges in the remote area where El Jutal is located, and they use mules to bring coffee into town. On the farm, everything is done by the family to reduce costs and improve profits at the farm level. However, the family is now working with CAFESCOR for technical support and to pursue certifications. (courtesy of The Coffee Quest)
