Dark fruits & Brazil nut, big bodied with a lingering finish.
Salvador Gross has been growing coffee at El Paraiso since 1960. Under his leadership the plantation has moved away from traditional methods of growing and processing. During his 58 years as a grower and producer, Salvador has seen the highs and lows; from the highs of coffee prices via the frosts that impacted Brazil to the more recent outbreak of coffee leaf rust. At 83 years of age he keeps his eyes set on producing stunning coffees, embracing what the future holds for his farm and family. Expect flavours of dark fruits and Brazil nut, a big body with a lingering finish.
