A juicy and fruity espresso with a soft acidity

This is a juicy espresso with notes of nectarine, passionfruit and a hint of lemon juice. When enjoyed with milk it is sweet and creamy with notes of stone fruit, vanilla, almond and shortbread. Try brewed as filter for a soft citrus, nectarine flavour complimented with a papaya aftertaste.

Leopoldo is a fifth generation coffee farmer and we have been working with him and his family since 2011. El Topacio is one of three farms owned by Leopoldo, and sits at the top of the mountains in Juayua with its sister farm, El Ausol. The processing of the coffee cherries happens at the third farm, El Diamante at the bottom of the mountains where the weather is drier and warmer which is more favourable to the natural process.


El Topacio, Juayua, Sonsonate, EL Salvador

More than a century ago, two ancient coffee-producing families were united by the marriage of Francisco Magaña and Evangelina Caceres. Both families were active in the coffee industry and owned land in the same Apaneca-Ilamatepec Mountain Range.

Francisco was an attorney but dedicated his entire life to his passion, coffee production. He taught his team to treat and pamper coffee plants with care and dedication. Francisco and his wife “Mamaevita” were always at the farm, taking their grandchildren to the harvest so they could admire the gorgeous red cherries, it quickly became a family affair.

Fast forward to today and the farm is owned by Maria Elena´s, one of those very grandchildren. The farm is managed by her son Leopoldo Muyshondt. Leopoldo has spent his entire working life in the coffee business, so he knows a thing or two about producing high quality coffee. And it shows.
