The history of Malacara dates back to the year 1888, when Don
Rafael Alvarez Lalinde inherited a property in the slopes of the
Santa Ana volcano from Rosa Valle, wife to his late brother,
Francisco Lalinde. He and his 13th son, Samuel, began cultivating
coffee in 1925. Soon Malacara became known as one of the largest
farms in the Santa Ana volcano region. In 1995, three grandchildren
of Don Rafael (Samuel, Emma and Arturo Alvarez Meza) inherited
Finca Malacara and divided into three lots: A, B and C. The
fifty hectares known as Malacara B stayed in the hands of Emma
Alvarez. Ripe Bourbon cherry is milled separate from the
other farms at Beneficio El Borbollón . Machine and manual
selection ensures uniformity of size and lack of defects in the
beans. Malacara B routinely places in the El Salvador Cup of
Excellence and continues to be a highly commended farm in a country
full of innovative producers.

mellow taste & Earthy

One of the better specialty coffee I' ve ever had the opportunity to sample. Earthy aroma leads to a gentle smoothe flavor with a hint of nuts and honey. A treat!
Robust flavor while smooth and rich
