Meet this year's Holiday Coffees: We have designated La Cancha by Finca Majahual from El Salvador as this year's Holiday Espresso – and as your loyal companion through the colder days from late autumn to early winter. When you fancy filter coffee, meet the other half of our Holiday Coffee Duo here.
La Cancha was born out of Patrick Murray's desire to do things differently and to think outside the box. Patrick, who manages the family farm of Finca Majahual along with his sister, wanted to try and process some of his coffee on Finca Majahual's premises, as opposed to having them processed at a station and delivering them there. What would happen if the farm tried to take care of its own processing? What would the results be?
In his attempt to answer that question, he had to find sufficient space on the farm to set up drying beds. He reached out to the staff at La Cumbre elementary school, which sits amidst the farm's territory, and provides education to the region's children, and offered them a collaboration: by working together, and using the school's basketball courts as a processing station, the school's teachers and students, and the farm's workers and management, would be able to process enough coffee to sell it as its own lot – to partners such as us, Five Elephant. In return, the proceeds from the premium charge on the coffee would be invested in building a computer lab for the school.
The result? Not only did La Cumbre's children get a brand new computer lab, but also us, and you, got the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful lot of zesty El Salvador espresso, which is a shining example to Finca Majahual's motto: coffee growing people.
Celebrate this year's holiday season with our La Cancha Red Bourbon espresso roast – which strikes with matching notes of biscuit, orange blossom, and hazelnut.
