Grab a blanket, a book, and curl up on the couch with this one - you won’t be disappointed .
True to its Bourbon heritage, the cup is incredibly sweet and complex. A delicate floral bouquet is followed by flavors of caramel, green apple, cinnamon, and sugarcane, with a crisp and clean finish. It is truly a sophisticated coffee.

Print Coffee Report
We first fell in love with the Silva family and the coffees they produce in 2005 as a result of a Cup of Excellence purchase. It was a farm called Finca Siberia, which is still under their management and produces exemplary coffees. Oddly enough, that same year, La Fany also earned Cup of Excellence recognition with a 4th place score.
The farm La Fany has been in the family since the early 1900s. Rafael Silva bought the farm from one of his aunts in the early 1990s and has been running the farm on his own ever since. Sitting high atop the Apaneca-Illamatepec Mountain range, it is a small farm of only 38 manzanas. While a large percentage of the coffee grown on the farm is Red Bourbon, Rafael considers La Fany an experimental farm and has planted many other varieties in recent years, including Pacamara, Yellow Caturra, Icatù, and Geisha. This particular lot is comprised of 100% Red Bourbon. It is a fullywashed coffee and is dried on raised beds.
The Silva family is committed to improving environmental practices on their farms, including protecting water supplies and providing a healthy work environment for all workers, including seasonal pickers. There is a vermicomposting system at La Fany that produces a substantial amount of organic compost for use on the farm.
