Description: Las Lomas is a farm that the Alvarez Family have been perfecting since 1957. Their strict, quality-driven standards for growing and processing make for a really impressive coffee. Growing Bourbon and Pacas varieties is very challenging at this elevation, in a country where leaf rust can be devastating. We can’t express enough how impressed we are with this coffee. Las Lomas coffee grows under native shade trees, improving and conserving the soil, while also encouraging biodiversity on the farm. This is a coffee built for daily drinking. It would make for a perfect drip coffee, or even blend component.

This was a sweet surprise on the cupping table with notes of Snickerdoodle Cookie, Milk Chocolate, Tangerine, and Sugarcane.

Easy roasting and Great tasting coffee

As others have said, this coffee tastes great as a light, medium, or dark roast.
A consistent roast level throughout the batch.
The flavor is more sweet than acidic, and well balanced. Enjoy!

Awesome coffee

I tried this bean due to watching a guy I follow on YouTube. He mentioned Bodhi Leaf along with these El Salvador beans. I'm so glad I tried them both for the 1st time.

My 1st ever roast, grind and brew

I watched a guy i follow on YouTube recommend Bodhi Leaf along with El Salvador beans. I knew absolutely nothing about green coffee beans or the process. Wow! I must have gotten lucky? The smell and taste is amazing! Our home smells like a gourmet coffee shop. Ty Bodhi Leaf and my friend Travis on YouTube.

Great anytime coffee

As a light-medium, this bean hits. It may just be that staple coffee that you always need to keep on hand. I've found that it can be brewed any way you want...even as a straight espresso or milk-based drink. This is a swiss army knife coffee.

Versatile, easy to roast, all around solid

I've been taking this to a solid medium level in my Behmor (darker end of City+, dropping to cool about a minute after first crack is over) and have enjoyed the combination of nutty and caramel/brown sugar notes it brings; reminds me of Nutella! Low acidity and a good candidate for darker roasts if that's your thing. Large beans lend to it being easy to roast and track changes in color and surface texture.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
