Why You'll love it:
On her small 5 acre farm, Maria Victoria has spent the last 10 years perfecting her coffee production process. The result is the highest quality El Salvadorean coffee available, offering an unparalleled sweetness evocative of stone fruit and chocolate confections.
Story of the Bean:
Maria Victoria married into coffee 10 years ago through her husband, who was born into a coffee-growing family. Managing Finca El Escorpion, Maria focuses on the most sensitive aspects of production, drying and processing, to ensure that the coffee's most delicate flavors are fully expressed. Maria's exacting specifications bring us a clean and complex coffee with vivacious fruit flavors balanced by nut and chocolate characteristics.

This was, by far, the most amazing coffee I've had in 10 years. I'm kicking myself that I didn't order more before it was sold out.
Great coffee, nothing crazy
Coffee is smooth, flavorful. Could drink everyday.

Very nice cup of coffee
This coffee is wonderful!! Both my husband and I love it. If you want a coffee that is full of flavor but not too bold, this is it.
