El Salvador Finca San Antonio boasts a classic cup. It is a washed specialty coffee (SHG), and it's also Rainforest Alliance certified. To be RFA certified means having standards that are intended to protect the environment and the rights of workers. This certification allows the farmers to have a sustainable farm-management system, control costs, gain efficiencies, improve crop quality, and maintain the wildlife habitat. Being green and keen here at Ovenbird, we're totally on board. A cup of this stuff brings about some wonderful sweetness, with soft acidity and medium body. Some nice smokey notes can be found lingering in the aftertaste.
