Klatch Coffee - El Salvador Las Mercedes Honey - 310 grams.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Our El Salvador Las Mercedes Icatu Honey is grown on the La Avila lot and offers a sweet herbal honeysuckle, golden raisin finishing with sugarcane. With a lingering sweet aftertaste and bright, juicy mouthfeel, this Honey Processed coffee is a memorable cup that will get your day going.

The world of coffee is interconnected. Our Klatch founder and CFO, Mike, makes annual visits to our farms and enjoys sharing the history of coffee, a journey that begins long before it makes its way to our roasters.

After collection, the coffee is put in the wash ditches and the mill is adjusted to leave some of the pulp on the coffee. The coffee is then put on the patios without being washed for a few days and then moved to raised beds until the humidity level is between 11.5% and 12%. We at Klatch Coffee were drawn to Las Mercedes because of its great coffee, but we found what we fell in love with was the people, the process, and our shared passion for persistently striving to make coffee the best it can be.

Klatch Coffee is a woman-owned, family-operated coffee company based in Southern California and distributed worldwide. We source, roast, and brew our own coffee, and apply our scientific method to accomplish a taste best described with expletives and exclamations. Some say it’s obsessive, we say it’s fun. Our methodical approach is a mix of coffee artistry and mad science — obsessively meticulous and thoroughly documented over many tastings to get it just right. We call it our “peak of flavor method,” and it’s earned us a spot on the world coffee stage for three decades and counting. Here at Klatch, we spend a lot of energy searching for and studying about the best coffee we can offer. We value people and planet before profit, and at Klatch Coffee, the conversation around coffee never stops. Our Klatch Direct Trade Coffee journey begins with a partnership with like-minded producers - those who share our same commitment to ethics, excellence, environmental stewardship, quality, and community. We follow a Direct Trade Coffee model that is designed to meet the needs of the families in today’s market, and buy straight from the growers, cutting out the traditional middleman. In doing so, we're able to pay well above Fair-Trade minimums - by at least 25% - and often pay double or triple those prices based on the cup quality. Our buying model is designed to push the envelope of quality coffee by encouraging viable, meaningful careers in specialty coffee agriculture. We only buy Cup of Excellence quality coffee and above, often 90 points or more, and we believe that a farmer that grows such award-winning coffee should be given their due. Through our Klatch Direct Trade model, we have not only simplified the supply chain, but we've also improved the quality and sustainability for farmers and have built long-term relationships with producers in various countries.
