This coffee evokes a great array of flavours, flowery aroma and a very deep body. It feels clean, lightly tangy but extremely pleasant and exotic.
Mauricio Ariz and his sons are fourth and fifth-generation coffee growers. El Aguila farm extends over 63 hectares just north of the Santa Ana volcano, in the mountain range of Ilamatepec. 43 of these hectares are used for coffee production, the remaining 20 hectares are dedicated to nature conservation or have been planted with cypress trees. The Ariz family are committed to keeping the primary forest within the farm untouched. The family also supports the Ojo de Agua community with workers and materials to maintain two access roads, as well as providing a water supply to the community from the farm’s water reservoirs.
