Producer: Carlos Batres
In 2014 we received an invitation from our friend and producer Carlos Batres to visit his Montecarlos farm. This is a very tempting offer that we couldn't resist. Carlos has been in the coffee business for over 30 years, his coffee is sold around the world and he is famous for its impeccable quality.
El Salvador is known for being a land of volcanoes, these extend throughout the country, there are more than 20 volcanoes in a very small area of land, so it is not uncommon for several farms to be located in the faults of a majestic one. Montecarlos turns out to be no exception to this rule, but unlike others that share the skirts with another farm; Montecarlos extends from the lower part to the upper part and all around the crater, to the north, south, east and west of the Volcano. Really impressive!
Montecarlos extends over 400 cultivated blocks of coffee varieties such as Bourbon, Pacamara, Caturra and Catuaí and another 200 more from Bosques as a nature reserve.
After the tour and a delicious lunch, we had a cup of coffee made by Carlos at Prensa Francesa, while we sat down to appreciate the volcanic lake that forms in the volcano's crater in front of his house to talk and listen to thousands of sounds of animals and birds all over that beautiful farm.
Many thanks to the Batres family for all their attention and such a spectacular trip !!
