Carlos Pola is a very experienced and innovative producer who has revolutionized coffee in El Salvador. From past experience in the textile industry, he has developed an application to trace daily lots from the plant to the cupping table. He has an in-house lab to carry out quality control and cupping sessions.
Fincas Las Brisas located in the municipality of Juayúa in Sonsonte is where this coffee is grown. For nine years Carlos has dedicated himself to the production of specialty coffees, with a vision focused on sustainability, quality, and data. This has resulted in less use of agrochemicals and effectiveness in production costs due to his scientific approach and experience.
His coffees are carefully picked and dried on African beds, and he performs different processes such as washed, semi-washed, honey, and natural. In addition, he has focused on controlled fermentations that have led to less water consumption at the farm. The coffees are fermented in sealed tanks, which limits the availability of oxygen with fermentation times ranging from 24 to 78 hours.
