Finca Himalaya is known for excellence. Being in family hands since 1880, Mauricio Salaverria has taken generations of coffee knowledge and pushed it to another level. He teamed up with experts such as former Barista World Champion, Sasa Sestic, and relentlessly worked on quality for years. Our natural microlot has notes of tangerine, pineapple, cane sugar, cookie dough and cinnamon. Citric acidity with a long, mouthwatering finish.
Maragogype is a very large and soft bean. It is one of Mauricio´s "Big three" (Pacamara, Maracaturra, Maragogype). It is named after Brazilians port town Maragogipe.
Mauricio owns several farms in the micro-region and all coffees are being processed and dried at his Divisadero washing station. Walking the station and the adjoining farm, it becomes instantly clear that the level of execution is in another league. Lot separation, different processing styles, huge wooden wine crates and anaerobic tanks are very visible. Meeting Mauricio you can sense the ambition and vision of this producer that drives him to get better.
The farm has 24 hectares and plants Bourbon, Caturra, Pacas, Pacamara, Geisha, Maragogype, Maracaturra and Kenyan SL28/34. Finca Himalaya has an excellent terroir with clay and volcanic soils, it produces coffees often awarded with the Cup of Excellence.
