Finca Don Jaime is small eight hectare farm owned and run by producer Jaime Guevara in the Chalatenango district of Alotepec-Metapán in El Salvador. The rugged terrain of this high-altitude region becomes dry during the harvest season and with this reduced water availability, the producers have become experts in the water saving honey processing method in recent years, producing some of the country's most exceptional, often award-winning coffees.

Jaime is one of these award winning farmers and he focuses his efforts on producing quality coffee. He has installed raised drying beds, more typical of those found in East Africa to better control the drying phase after fermentation of his coffee. When controlled well this type of drying allows for the coffee to be cured at lower temperatures compared to the more traditional concrete patio method. This helps retain sweetness an attribute very present in this micro-lot. To further support Jaime’s processing Artisan Roast has funded a shading system for the raised beds as well to help maintain these lower drying temperatures throughout the day.

Most of Jaime’s coffee is Pacas, a bourbon based cultivar first identified and selected in El Salvador. It thrives in Chaletenango and this example showcases well Pacas’ potential for delicious and balanced coffees. We’ve roasted it medium to light in order to focus on the harmonious flavour combination of caramel, dried cranberries and tamarind fruit. A harmoniously balanced sweetness and acidity brings these flavours together further while aftertastes of apple and lime citrus add juiciness and structure to the finish.
