About the coffee
Finca El Angel was named in honor of the first granddaughter of the father of the current operators of the farm, Gerardo and Carlos Mendez Florez. It is a Custaleco variety: a Villa Sarchi x Timor hybrid cross. It was prepared naturally and then dried on African beds for 25 to 30 days. The natural process, also known as the drying process, is an approach that originated in Ethiopia and goes back to basics. The fruit and bean dry together and can produce outstanding sweet and fruity flavors. While it requires less investment, it still requires certain climatic conditions to ensure timely drying of the fruit and seeds.
El Angel has a medium body and in the cup notes of sweet vanilla and milk chocolate as well as fruity apricot.
