La Esperanza Rainforest certified

La Esperanza Rainforest certified

June 04, 2020

Introducing El Salvador SHG La Esperanza, the exclusive coffee for June 2020 to Coffee of the Month Club members.

This delicious roast is certified by the Rainforest Alliance and harvested by descendants of the Magaña-Menendez family in El Salvador. The family takes great pride in preserving the ecosystem where the coffee grows, and they strive to maintain sustainability while also contributing to important social projects in the region.

When you taste June’s featured coffee, you’ll get a sense of the love and pride that goes into El Salvador SHG La Esperanza. It’s a bourbon varietal, fully washed and sun-dried at an altitude of 1,300 to 1,500 meters. With mild acidity, a medium body and sweetness, it also delivers notes of milk chocolate and orange with each sip.

At Fire Department Coffee, we are dedicated to serving coffees that are socially and environmentally sourced and only the best quality that you won't find in grocery stores. Our coffee is roasted to order and delivered fast and fresh. And as with all products at FDC, 10% of the net proceeds go to help America’s ill and injured first responders.


If you haven't joined the club yet, what are you waiting for? Enjoy exclusive coffee from around the world.
