Carlos Pola is known in the coffee community for innovation. When Carlos took over the family farms in 2012, he was determined to create a more sustainable system. By planting nitrogen-fixating shade trees, and propagating mycorrhiza fungi that facilitate nutrient exchange between coffee trees, Carlos has been able to create a resilient ecosystem on his farm. Although washed processed coffees are more common in El Salvador, Carlos opts to focus on Honey and Natural processes that greatly reduce the water usage of the farm. 

Honey-processed coffees are loved for their heightened sweetness, and this offering from Carlos Pola is a shining example of that. It opens with the punchy sweetness of Rhubarb, which rolls into sweet wild honey with a velvety mouthfeel. As the coffee cools, delicate back tea comes forward to mingle with the sugary sweetness. This is a great offering for anyone who likes an adventurous single origin.
