The coffee story

Our Yellow Icatú grows on the portion of our farm that used to be a theme park (yes, really!). We refer to it as the Train Lot as it's located within what used to be the park's old train ride. Our Yellow Icatú has adapted incredibly well to this area and is currently thriving and living its best life! Once it's ripe, it turns a beautiful shade of yellow with brown specs (think of a ripe banana) and is selectively picked. 

The process

Once the coffee is picked, it is naturally dried on our patios and supervised by one of our most esteemed collaborators, Don Rogelio. Our patios are located right within the farm and receive plenty of fresh breezes. From our patios, you can see San Salvador's historic city center to the left, and beautiful lake Ilopango to the right. This breeze creates a natural balance between the direct sunlight and allows coffee to dry gently under the sun. Once dried, our coffee is bagged and sent to our parter mill's warehouse for safe storage. Their warehouses are kept clean and tiny, with an incredible organization system that guarantees full traceability. Once an order is made, the coffee is processed and shipped from the mill. Our coffee is continuously cupped by certified Q Graders in order to guarantee safe storage and optimum quality.

"We have been working with the Boza’s for nearly two years. Over the past couple of years, we have enjoyed swapping stories with each other, participating in industry talks and even meeting up in person. We love the coffee and Karla and her family are very open to answering any questions we may have about what happens at the farm level. The Boza’s are a pleasure to do business with and we look forward to it for many years to come."

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.

2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:

We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
