VillaCipresVillaCipres is smack dab in the middle of one of the best coffee producing regions in Central America. The Apaneca region is called the valley of gold because of how good the coffee is and how many COE winners there are. VillaCipres is surrounded by them and their sister neighbor farm VillaGallicia has won COE twice. The farm is almost exclusively Bourbon. Only perfectly red ripe cherry is picked and the Cuzcachapa mill is renowned for its excellent processing. The finca is surrounded on all sides by Cipres trees that provide windbreaks and shade.

Unique to VillaCipres is that they have their own micro mill where they process all of their own coffee. The use a eco-pulper so they can dial in exactly the level of mucilage to remove or leave on. And they dry all their coffee on African style raised beds. So the flavor profile is extra sweet and syrupy.
