- Red Apples
Las Ranas is a tablon (block) inside the greater San Francisco farm. This coffee is grown at about 1500 MASL. It consists of 41 hectares in an area well known for sweet, delicate and classic El Salvadorian coffees. The cultivars grown is a mix of Bourbon and Hibrido de San Francisco (a local hybrid of the dwarf bourbon Pacas and old Bourbon Elite).
The producer is innovative in ways of processing and farming. They separate everything by days of picking and do different processes, fermentation and drying techniques depending on capacity and potential of the particular lot. In this case it is mechanically demucilaged before it is soaked under clean water over night and then carefully dried on patio. They manage the drying times by building up layers and resting the coffees in piles.
