About this coffee
The best things come straight from the source.
The Menendez’s are so precise and organized within each of their farms that they name each section of the farm as a smaller microlot. Usually, these all get processed together, but being in the right place at the right time has its advantages.
A couple years ago on our origin trip to El Salvador, we had the privilege of tasting the subtle nuances between very small microlots of many of the Menendez Family coffee farms. One that stood out to us was the ‘La Siguinilla’ lot from El Rosario, which is a neatly manicured, flat expanse carved into the hill. So, the Menendez’s separated that one portion of the lot from the rest of the El Rosario lots to give us an even more traceable-to-the-source coffee. This is La Siguinilla’s third year with us and we are as delighted as ever to present it to you.
La Siguinilla gives us the classic Menendez coffee flavors that keeps us coming back year after year. Hazelnuts and orange zest provide a comforting and approachable body and acidity, complemented by a raw sugar sweetness. The Menendez coffees are some of our favorites, not only because they please any coffee drinker, but also because they always have a great story to tell.
