The Bosque Lya coffee family story:
The farm was established in 1932 when Gustavo Vides Valdes named his property in honour of his newly born daughter, Lya. The farm name Bosque Lya translates to - Lya’s forest. This is a 96-hectare farm, 64 of which are dedicated to coffee, the balance being left as natural rainforest. However, in many parts of the farm, it is difficult to recognise what is pure forest and what isn’t, since so many shade trees are used.
This wonderful coffee from El Salvador has a wonderful nutty flavour full of hazelnuts and praline. It has low acidity and with its heavy body we bought it with espresso-based drinks in mind, however, it does make a wonderful filter too. It is delicious drunk black or with milk.
Roast Level: light medium
We roast the Bosque Lya to a light medium level so it is perfect for both filter and espresso coffee drinkers. It works perfectly with milk.
