Llach Café, La Haciendita
Chocolate, Malt, Creamy
Since 1890, Llach Café has been producing some of the finest coffee in El Salvador with an eye toward environmental stewardship. Located high on the volcanic slopes of San Vincente; the cool weather and rich soils allow coffee cherries to slowly develop deep, layered flavors. Llach’s coffee is shade grown, with indigenous trees on the property not only protecting the delicate berries from the sun, but also providing a natural habitat for thousands of birds, animals and flora that are indigenous to El Salvador. Coffee production follows in the same philosophy by using a minimum amount of water to wash the coffee cherries, drying the berries in the sun and then composting the discarded pulp to help fertilize next year’s crop.
Expect a creamy, full-bodied cup with floral accents and perfect balance.
This coffee has a soft acidity that comes out at a lighter roasts. Hints of citrus blend together with stronger floral notes and a chocolate aftertaste.
We roast Llach a tad darker to bring out more creamy body and malty chocolate notes with nuts.
This is a creamy dark roast. There is very little acidity left and so you get hit with the full, rich body of this coffee.
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
