It would seem logical that the smallest Central American coffee-growing country would produce microlots, but historically, much of the coffee was blended and sold to mills, without much lot differentiation and separation. The rise of specialty coffee in El Salvador has inspired many producers to start to identify and isolate individual varieties, and to experiment with sorting and processing, as a way of attracting buyers and getting higher prices, but access to those resources can still be difficult for smaller growers.

Focusing on the region of Chalatenango, our green buyer has partnered with a Q-grader and a local mill to buy small, select microlots from producers—some separated by variety, some by process, and some by both. The coffee is bought in parchment the ruling, final sorting and bagging is done by our green buyer. This allows for more quality control as well as the ability to package some of these very special small lots in custom 35-kilo Pequeños bags, to create more widespread access to these coffees.

Ever Francisco Sosa grows Bourbon, Pacas, Pacamara, and Gesha trees on his 1.5-manzana (apple) farm: The small area is planted with about 2,800 trees, and his annual production is only 20–35 quintals, but the quality is exceptional. The coffee is picked ripe and depulped, then dried in its mucilage as a Honey for 15–25 days on raised beds. His farm has increased little by little and he hopes to continue growing the area, and he hopes that roasters and customers keep liking his coffee so that he can continue to bring it to market.
