Additional Info

This is our 9th year we have had the privilege of a Direct Relationship with the Menendez family in El Salvador.  Miguel Menendez Sr. carries on his family’s coffee farming tradition of four generations, personally overseeing every detail of his 7 award-winning farms and beneficio (coffee mill).

The Menendez’ are blessed with an incredible natural environment, ideal for growing amazing coffee. Their native forest rises to 1900 meters along an extinct volcano that provides heavy bird canopy and wildlife habitat. The family is also unique in owning and operating their own beneficio, which processes strictly Menendez coffees using the most sophisticated systems available.

This is a ‘Rainforest Alliance’ coffee, a certification that goes well beyond simply organic or fair trade to encompass environmental, economic, and social aspects. Pickers for the Menendez’ farms earn the highest wages in the area­, and the family pours money into the local economy particularly in the areas of youth programs and education.

Miguel and his sons have been regular winners of El Salvador’s prestigious ‘Cup of Excellence’ competition, beating out hundreds of farms on quality only. At Evans Brothers we have worked diligently to develop a roast profile that showcases the incredible care that the Menendez team put into cultivating this coffee. We are super stoked to introduce this years lot to you!
