The coffees from the Salaverria family are some of our all time favourites and this version of The Fields marks the return of one of their best natural processed lots. Buena Vista is a small lot separation from the within one of the family's larger farms, El Molino. Coffee is hand picked here at an intense and deep red ripeness before being transported down the hillside to their Las Cruces mill for processing.
Now into their 6th generation of coffee history, the JASAL daily operations have always been a family affair and are now overseen by brothers Jose Antonio and Andres Salaverria. Their commitment to community initiatives is an obvious part of maintaining their loyal full time staff with education, housing and free healthcare offered. In a time when many producers are struggling with leaf rust and profitability the Salaverria’s are also investing in environmental measures with much of their production Rain Forest Certified and organic fertilisers used to regenerate their farms.
