PRODUCER Mauricio Salaverria
ABOUT ME Mauricio Salaverria’s company ‘Divisadero Café Farms’ oversees the operations at all of his farms across the Ataco and Apaneca regions of El Salvador. The Divisadero name has been in his family for generations, and Mauricio himself is a fifth-generation coffee producer.
The name Divisadero can also refer to a small, very special lot where this coffee is grown, nestled within Finca Himalaya. Six hectares of fertile clay and volcanic soils, growing multiple varietals, including bourbon, caturra, pacas and pacamara, ranging up to 1600 masl. The plot named Tablon Divisadero produces award winning coffees, including the 7th place in Cup of Excellence 2015.
The Divisadero lot lies on what is known as the ‘flower trail’ and is adjacent to the mill in which all the harvested coffees are processed and prepared. When processing these unique lots, the cherries are selectively picked and sorted according to ripeness and size. They are placed on African beds in thick layers to enhance sweetness in the case of naturals like this beautiful lot.
Mauricio and his team consistently rate coffees from Tablon Divisadero as some of the best lots they produce, and it hasn’t taken international roasters like us long to think the same. Such a nice coffee this one, our first from Mauricio at Divisadero and won't be our last!
