Finca Miravalle is owned by Luis Duarte and is located in Apaneca, Ahuachapan, not too far from the Santa Ana volcano. Miravalle is about 1500 meters above sea level. It's part of a much larger group of coffee plots. Duarte has kept his farm planted in Bourbon and Pacamara for the most part, despite the susceptibility to leaf rust. Many farmers are replanting with disease-resistant varietals, but Luis Duarte has chosen to continue with these cultivars because of the commonly held belief that they taste superior to most disease-resistant hybrids available and manages to prevent leaf rust and fungal outbreaks with good farm practices (proper space between plants, regular pruning, cleaning beneath the trees, directive spraying). This coffee offers a pleasant drinking experience with taste notes of orange syrup, dark chocolate, and black tea.
This bean is best enjoyed as a filter coffee, either hot or iced.
