El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America, and shares a border with Guatemala and Honduras. The coffee production has fuelled the country’s economy and shaped its history for the past century. Coffee was planted in this country originally for domestic consumption in the mid-1700s, however over the next 100 years it became a stable and significant crop. It’s production increased rapidly throughout the 1800s.
El Gobiado is an extremely well-run speciality estate and is managed with scrupulous attention detail, with great emphasis placed on maintaining the identity of each lot from the moment its coffee cherries are harvested until the point when the green beans are ready for export. The estates coffee is produced under approximately 60% shade cover, which is required for the coffee to ripen evenly. Prior to the rainy season, shade trees are then pruned to about 40% shade to allow the access of light necessary for new foliage growth.
