El Ocote is named for the conifer tree that towers over the farm of Yeltsin Sagastume. The middle of three brothers that run seven family farms and a wet milling operation on the northeastern foothills of the Santa Bárbara Mountain, Yeltsin is known for his experimental yet careful approach to coffee production andprocessing. This lot from El Ocote is a traditional washed process of the parainema coffee variety, which is newly famous in this region for its ability to withstand coffee tree diseases while producing vibrant flavor profiles at mid-range altitudes.
