Description: Since 1856, this family has maintained a long tradition of cultivating coffee. The coffee is grown in altitudes over 400 feet in Comasagua, a small village nestled in Cordillera del Balsamo (Balsam Mountain Range) in La Libertad El Salvador. The land in this region is prime for cultivating coffee, with natural shade provided by an abundance of balsam trees. The coffee is of the highest quality, with rich nutrients absorbed from the fresh waters that run down the side of the mountain into the Comasagua River below. The coffee beans exhibit a balanced, creamy and excellent texture. The fruity and floral characteristics of the balsam trees are prevalent in the flavor of the coffee providing its velvety character, unique to anywhere else in the world.
