Finca El Salvador 

Arriving from Italy in the 1920s, Luigi Risso had grand plans to open an espresso bar in San Salvador. Quickly, his heart led him away from the bright lights of the city and up into the coffee-growing hills of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range. It was here he founded Finca El Salvador.

A century and five generations on, Luigi's great-great-grandson Rodolfo Ruffatti is at the helm. Taking over full-time management of the farm in 2020 after his father's retirement, Rodolfo has set about splitting the farm into 50% micro-lot and exotic varietals, 50% high volume pulped natural and natural lots.

Rodolfo's work is producing really exceptional coffees, over the past few years we've enjoyed a number of beautiful examples from his farm. This specific coffee is made up of a selection of bourbon lots – primarily red bourbon with small amounts of yellow, pink and orange.

In the cup, you can expect all the qualities that should be present in an exceptional espresso– prominent sweetness, indulgent texture and balanced acidity.

Assembly House Espresso 

The seasonally rotating Assembly House Espresso is always the ultimate expression of terroir, diversity and producer expertise. We source our House Espresso to celebrate the diversity of coffee. By rotating the coffee throughout the year, we make multiple premium coffees accessible at competitive prices. And by working closely with the same producers over multi-year contracts, not only do we deliver consistent impact, we’re constantly refining and improving to dial in on the formula for the perfect espresso.


Best: Espresso
Great: Filter (batch brew, French Press Chemex)
Very good: Pour over with the Orea Brewer V3

Suggested starting recipe for espresso: 18g dose for 36g yield in 29 seconds

Recommended resting period (from roast date): At least 10 days. If you're ordering ground coffee, use immediately.  

As always, the House Espresso is versatile. This is the recipe we use in the roastery for a balanced espresso that is sweet, vibrant and shines when drunk black and also with milk. Of course there are a number variables that will impact the optimum recipe for you, but start here and you'll be on your way to brewing the coffee to its maximum potential.
