Chaman, comes by way of the Productor company which is run by Rodolfo Battle a third generation coffee farmer and consultant from El Salvador. Rodolfo has has been operating in Colombia for the last five years slowly building up strong relationships there and investing in the Colombian communities producing some amazing coffee’s.
Chaman is a regional lot coming by way of the San Juan de Opico region in San Augustin. But don’t be fooled to think that that means this coffee is not of excellent quality. San Juan de Opico is actually one of the highest altitude’s for growing coffee in the region and the cup itself absolutely expresses that sense of excellence.
The lot itself is named after the region’s name for the local Shaman’ who have a spiritual connection to bats. So this coffee’s name is kind of like Batman.
