Finca El Corozo
Finca El Corozo is a farm situated on the slopes of Ilamatepec, a volcano located in the Santa Ana department of El Salvador. The area was decimated by a volcanic eruption in 2005 - covering the farm in over a foot of volcanic ash. Fernando Lima has rebuilt the farm, planting both Pacamara & Bourbon varietals which are thriving in part due to the fertile volcanic soil. Finca El Corozo is sourced and directly traded by KIN + ILK in partnership with Clifton coffee.
Fernando ‘The Don’ Lima
Fernando Lima himself has been the winner of many a cup of excellence for his coffees and is confident that Finca El Corozo will achieve this recognition in the future. He is often referred to as the “Don” of coffee in El Salvador.
This is a honey processed coffee, meaning the skin and pulp are removed and it is then left to dry in it’s mucilage or honey layer. In the cup, there's tasting notes of Pecan, red apple + milk chocolate.

Direct trade for KIN+ILK is much more than skipping out the middle man. We visit Fernando every year to strengthen our relationship and build trust. When the market price is low we still pay high, the aim is creating a sustainable partnership where the producer can give back to their local community and we can offer the best quality coffee.
Local, fresh and packed full of flavour.
