Description:This coffee is the product of skill and knowledge from Emilio López and Jose Roberto Santamaría’s multigenerational coffee-producing families. They have a deep connection with their land and together they joined forces to create Odyssey Coffees, an El Salvador and Portland-based coffee company. Their production is located at 6 farms: Fincas Las Isabellas, Tapantogusto, Las Piedras, La Cumbre, El Manzano and Ayutepeque. ‍When they merged their operations, Emilio and Jose worked together to ensure that they were using the same methods on all their farms and ensure that their quality is consistent and sustainable. They offer coffee to clients worldwide and have a strong recurring demand for their production. Finca Ayutepeque is named after 2 Mayan words: “ayute” means “turtle” and “peque”, which means “mountain.” Put together, the farm name means “Turtle Mountain”. Founded in 1840, Finca Ayutepeque has been managed by the same family for 6 generations. In order to support the producing communities near Finca Tequendama and Finca Las Isabellas, they created their project “Growing Together” in April 2021. They offered workshops for suppliers to help them increase their productivity and quality. They also offer medical assistance and educational programs for youth. At Emilio’s farms, cherry is selectively handpicked and processed on the farm. Ripe, red cherry is pulped and mechanically washed to remove the mucilage using 1/10th the amount of water required for typical fully washed coffees. Parchment is laid to dry on patios where it is raked frequently to ensure even drying. Parchment is pre-dried on the patios and then finished in a mechanical horizontal dryer.
