- Orlando Aguilar
For a limited time only!
We are incredibly proud to have worked with Café Imports to roast the World Aeropress Championship coffee. This very special micro-lot from producer Orlando Aguilar was selected in partnership with our friends at Café Imports for its highly complex character and cup proﬁle. Orlando descends from a large producing family that is steeped in tradition and a strong legacy in El Salvador. In his relentless search for quality, Orlando cultivates strong varietals only where he can ensure ideal conditions for the trees to thrive. The harvest at his farm, Finca Buena Vista, is done by selective hand-picking to ensure only the perfectly ripe cherries are taken. Fermentation then takes place in sacks for 9-12 hours before being de-pulped, washed and dried on raised beds for 10-13 days. You will ﬁnd that the complexity of this coffee is apparent by brewing on a variety of brew methods, each bringing out the range of unique characteristics. Expect crisp red apple and caramel sweetness with a long citrus acidity.
