The Buenos Aires Project brings together small growers that have high quality coffee potential and the desire to become involved in a sustainability scheme. The project started with 25 growers with average farms size below 5 hectares, these growers have properties ranging from 1,300 to 1,700 masl on the slopes of the Santa Ana volcano, which is one of the main growing areas in El Salvador.
The cherries are collected from the farms by the mill truck and brought down to the mill. The mill floats and washes them first, then pulp it and leave it to ferment overnight in tiled tanks. After this the coffee is then washed to remove any mucilage remaining and transferred to the patios. It dries in the sun for 13 - 15 days with regular turning.
Why No. 1958 - It was the year the Pacamara (a hybrid of two varietals of green coffee plants) was invented
