El Salvador Angel's Mountain
Dark Chocolate. I smell, brew, roast, or sip this coffee and those two words immediately come to mind. As I drank a cup yesterday, I imagined how it would taste as a latte with just steamed heavy cream and I got really excited, so this morning I tried it. The excitement was not unfounded. If you're looking for a Latin American espresso, you've come to the right place. This coffee is perfect for that.

Angel's Mountain Coffee Production:
Since 1856, Barbie Perry's family has maintained a long tradition of cultivating coffee. Their coffee is grown between 1200-1450 meters above sea level in Comayagua, a small village nestled in Cordillera del Balsamo (or the Balsam mountain range) in La Libertad El Salvador. Their land in this region is prime for cultivating coffee, with natural shade provided by an abundance of balsam trees. The coffee that they grow is of the highest quality, with rich nutrients absorbed from the fresh waters that run down the side of the mountain into the Comasagua River below. Their coffee beans exhibit a balanced, creamy and excellent texture. The fruity and floral characteristics of the balsam trees are prevalent in the flavor of the coffee providing its velvety character. Unique to anywhere else in the world. They grow strictly high grown 100% Arabica coffee of the bourbon type.
In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 4 different coffee grind levels. Listed below with descriptions.
Whole Bean: Unground coffee for a home grinder.
Coarse: Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse
Recommended for Chemex Brewer, French Press, Cold Brew
Medium: Slightly coarser than table salt
Recommended for Flat bottom brewers, Kalitta, and Cloth filters
Fine: Slightly finer than table salt
Recommended for V60 pour overs, Typical cone filter coffee pots, Aeropress.
Extra Fine: Like powdered sugar
Recommended for Espresso or Moka pot.
If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.
We roast and ship all of our coffees daily. Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal. We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it. We then ship it that day.
We primarily use USPS priority shipping and we've found that they are more consistent on some days vs. others. Sometime we'll use Fedex 2 day when the economics of the order make sense. We like to use priority shipping which is supposed to be 2/3 day shipping to most of the country, but that doesn't always happen, in fact, our analytics show that about 10% of the time it takes 4 days or longer to receive the coffee.
That said, due to COVID-19, USPS has announced that Priority will be 3-4 days. I'm guessing that means that you'll see 5, 6 or even 7 days to get your package right now. So read below for a pricing / option change that we're making during this period.
We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.
Also, if you order before 6am AZ on most days, we'll be able to include it in that day's production, but depending on volume it may go out the next day. We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments.
