Notes

Juan Jose Ernesto ‘Neto’ Menéndez Argüello belongs to the fourth generation of coffee farmers in his family. He has participated in various events like the Cup of Excellence (National Jury from 2003 to 2011), Q Auction, Q Grader, and the Star Cupper program organised by SCAA and CQI. Las Brumas is located around an hour from Santa Ana city. It has a cultivated area of 60 hectares’ worth of coffee yield, all of which is at an altitude ranging from 1450 – 1700 masl.

The farm is in the Sonsonate department near the area known as San Blas. Las Brumas has very rich volcanic soil; it is deep and very fertile and has been generated by Ilamatepec and Izalco volcanic eruptions throughout history. Due to its location between three famous volcanoes, a unique microclimate reduces the amount of daylight that the coffee trees receive. This helps the trees have a very slow photosynthesis, improving the maturation process; this, in turn, improves some attributes that are closely related to maturity, like the aroma, sweetness, acidity and flavour.
