Traditionally we have always worked with coffees from the Santa Ana region in the West of El Salvador, however following a trip there in February 2017, we stumbled across an amazing group of producers in the northern region of Chalatenango which borders Honduras.
This coffee is one of the most versatile beans we have with beautiful rounded acidity that is plum like in character. There are hints of tangerine and caramel with notes of creamy milk chocolate adding balance and structure.
El Salvador is a land of volcanoes, many of them still active, which means there is an abundance of fertile soil and high altitude – perfect conditions for growing high quality coffee. For the last few years we have been working with an incredible group of smallholder farmers who are committed to the principles of specialty coffee production in the lesser known northern region of Chalatenango. We first came across this coffee during a trip to El Salvador in 2017 and have been working alongside Alfonso, Maria, Jose and Orlando ever since. Their coffee gets better each year and we are committed to purchasing their full production of specialty grade coffee due to their admirable dedication to their crop and land. This coffee is high grown in comparison to much of El Salvador and as such experiences a later harvest. Another unique factor is that the coffee is washed on site as opposed to being taken to a centralised wet mill. This means the producers themselves can maintain control over the flavour profile and quality of their coffee and they are invited to cup each lot at the lab in La Palma to receive feedback from the expert cuppers there. The farms that have contributed towards this lot are beautiful and are run with care and consideration for the environment and farm workers.
These producers are going against the grain in their local community and are totally committed to raising the quality of their crop. We feel their coffee holds great potential for the future and are delighted to be partnering with these pioneering producers, investing in what they are doing by contributing funds towards the construction of quality improvement initiatives.
This year’s crop is deliciously sweet with notes of plum, tangerine and caramel – there are undertones of creamy milk chocolate too which make this coffee suited to a wide range of brew methods ranging from espresso through to filter.

I have signed up to a subscription with you, when will it be sent out?
Great news! Thanks so much we are excited to have you on board! Your order is now on our system and is usually dispatched between 1-3 working days of us having received it depending on how busy we are! We work so hard to get your order out to you as soon as we possibly can and it will be sent with the Royal Mail 1st Class service.
Are your packages letterbox friendly?
Not currently, we are working on it! There is no signature required for the coffee so if you are not going to be in to receive it, please just include a note for where you would like it leaving and we can include this in our shipping instructions. We know how annoying it is to have to go to the depot to pick up and are working to get a more letterbox friendly option together as soon as we can.
I need to change my address details..
Sure thing! Just drop us a line to email@example.com and we will sort that for you 🙂
Local pickups take place from the Roastery on Tong Road. Please note our shutter doors will be down for security and temperature reasons but we are always in Monday-Friday between 9 and 5pm – just ring the doorbell on arrival. We are offering free shipping for orders above £20 🙂
Once you have placed your order, you will receive an email to confirm it is being processed and then another one to let you know when it has been dispatched. We are currently operating with a 2-3 working day lead time to process your order once you have placed it. If you have ordered a Nova Bakehouse cookie kit, this will be posted on the next available Tuesday along with any other items you have ordered.
We work directly with growers we know and trust to source specialty grade coffee from farms that promote agroforestry techniques and social responsibility to not just sustain, but to improve how things work.Find out more
