This is a unique blend of white honey, yellow honey and natural red bourbon beans. I tasted dark fruit (think plum, cherry), orange and some spice. The fruit is muted but quite pleasant. Very complex, with a medium body and a medium long finish.
Anny Ruth Pimental runs Loma La Gloria’s coffee operations and today the farm’s coffee has earned an international reputation for quality in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Loma La Gloria is known for its carefully processed Honey and Natural coffees sorted by variety. Loma La Gloria is located in the El Boquerón crater of the San Salvador Volcano. The farm’s elevation ranges from 1200 to 1750 meters above sea level.
Shade trees cover much of Loma La Gloria and are home to many species of birds, including Blue jays, Chiltotas, Torditos, Guacalchias, and Hummingbirds. The shade canopy helps control temperatures on the farm, maintaining the optimal climate to produce a desirable cup profile.
Belvedere blends Red Bourbon coffee cherries processed three ways, as White Honey, Yellow Honey, and Naturals to showcase the mature flavors of Loma La Gloria’s late bloom harvest. All honey processing is conducted on raised beds where coffee is carefully monitored and turned as it dries.
