Origin Story

Aida Batlle

Finca Kilimanjaro is owned and operated by Aida Batlle, a fifth-generation coffee farmer who has gained a great deal of respect within the coffee industry over the years. She entered her coffee in the very first El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition in 2003, making a splash by placing two winning lots, including first place for Finca Kilimanjaro. Since then, she has garnered admiration for her commitment to quality and transparency, as well as for providing high wages, health care and other benefits for her workers.

Located high in the hills above the town of Santa Ana, Finca Kilimanjaro (named by Aida’s father after the famous mountain in Tanzania) is planted with the Bourbon variety coffee, as well as what is rumored to be a mysterious cultivar imported from Kenya some seven decades ago. Could it be the renowned SL28, or a descendant of the original French Mission Bourbon? We may never know the true answer, but what we do know is this mysterious lineage in combination with high altitude and exceptional farm practices create a cup that tastes amazing!

Why We Love This Coffee

We have been working with Aida for several years – for this lot we asked if she would use the honey processing method after offering fully-washed and natural lots the past couple of years. This way of processing involves leaving trace amounts of fruit clinging to the beans after harvesting and pulping. The method gets its name from the sticky, honey-like appearance the coffee develops while drying, and the sweet flavor profile it creates.
