With extensive planning, separation, care and learning how to do unorthodox uber-micro lot export - we present the Madcap Varietal Series.  The Series gives the opportunity to experience 8 unique single varieties that are grown by our friends in Apaneca, El Salvador. The series includes everything from the original identified varieties, to mutations, hybrids and even a recently discovered and unknown cultivar. The line-up includes Caturra, Pacamara, Orange Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, Typica, Bourbon, Elefante and Pacas.  The series is a result of careful cultivation and processing of all 8 coffees that are grown in close proximity to one another between the elevation of 1,400-1,500 meters. All of the coffees are harvested ripe by hand, de-pulped, fermented, then fully washed and patio dried to properly highlight the nuance of each variety. Thanks to the whole Rodriguez family - Gloria, Majo, Luis and Roberto - for all the hard work and the great coffee!



The package includes 45 grams of each coffee.  This is enough to flush your grinder and brew 24 oz. Or perhaps 2 smaller brews.  Only 150 Variety Series Packages are available.  The coffee will be roasted fresh and shipped out June 24, 2013. Tune in throughout the month for blog spots on each individual coffee variety that is being featured.
