More About El Borbollon Washed Typica

Since 1985, El Borbollon mill has been processing some the best quality coffees in El Salvador. El Borbollon has continued the Alvarez family’s time honoured tradition of growing, milling and exporting the finest coffees in the country. The excellent growing conditions and the commitment to developing sustainable practices has helped them to harvest the best coffee cherries.
El Borbollon Typica is a specific selection from different lots and farms located on the Santa Ana volcano, that still carry this heirloom varietal.
According to the World Coffee Research: Typica is the most famous of the Typica-descended varieties. It is a tall variety characterised by lower production, susceptibility to the major diseases, but good cup quality. It is believed El Salvador has been growing this variety from as early as 1840, and it remained the predominant variety until the 1940s
As some lots received at the mill started to show some interesting qualities, El Borbollon started to separate those based on cup qualities, and due to the intrinsic organoleptic differences, this is a blend of only the best coffees received by the mill.
