El Salvador Kenya’s Wiggle

Cupping notes

Caramel, Toffee Apple, Nectarine

Description

Kenya’s Wiggle is a red bourbon variety harvested from the top of the El Molino farm. It is named after Kenya, the German Shepherd that lives at Jasal’s Las Cruces dry mill.

Once picked, the cherries were delivered to the dry mill for sorting by our very own trader, Jack. Floaters were removed by hand in fermentation tanks before being passed through the depulper, where approximately 20% of the mucilage was removed. The pulped cherry was then moved to raised beds and turned consistently before final drying was completed on the patios.

Jasal is a family-owned producer and exporter located in the Apaneca-Ilamatapec region of El Salvador. Since Andres Salaverria took over management of the company in 2011, there has been a strong focus on cup quality and innovative processing. There are now a total of 40 farms across the Jasal estate, ranging from 10 hectares – 230 hectares in size. All plots are shade-covered, handpicked and mixed variety depending on terroir.

A huge thank you to Andres and the whole Jasal team for making this coffee possible!

Rediscovering El Salvador with Jasal and Urrutia's

05 May 2023

In March 2023, MT and Jack were back at Jasal and Urrutia’s Estates in El Salvador. They are two of our longest and strongest producer partners. Despite the global challenges the industry has faced in recent years, both producers have continued to drive forward quality and invest in new equipment at their respective mills. We were excited to see and taste this progress firsthand.
