We're delighted to welcome back the Los Chelazos Group from Chalatenango, El Salvador. And this season, we're featuring a new coffee Las Terrazas, produced by Maria Isabel and Alexander Murcia. Owned by Isabel, Alex used to farm vegetables on Las Terrazas until they decided to start growing coffee eight years ago. It's only been 3 years since Alex began to produce speciality coffee. His primary focus has been picking ripe cherries only, removing the pulp on the same day and fermenting the coffee for an average of 15 hours. He says that one of the biggest challenges has been learning to dry coffee properly, and it has taken him a few years to master the skill. When asked about the future, Alex plans to buy more land and build a healthy plantation to increase production, producing top-notch quality only.
