legendary coffee farmer and dedicated four barrel employee, alejandro valiente, has a hand-hewn pine cabin up in the montecristo mountains of el salvador. from his porch, you can watch the birds fly north across the guatemalan border, or east into honduras, across wild, lush forests protected by national parks and biological reserves. for his part, alejandro has carefully cultivated his slice of the trifinio with 400 meticulously tended pacamara plants that he can almost prune from his front door; he calls his plot "anarquia" with a nod to the rugged and untamed mountains surrounding him. the volcanic soil, elevation and diversity of life in the trifinio have always made for exceptional coffees that we have sought out over the years, so when we visited alejandro's cabin and saw what he was creating, we had a hunch that we were going to be blown away. the coffee that arrived in san francisco recently charmed us with its dried apricots, peaches and blackberries, while causing a little bit of a ruckus with its layers of grapefruit and citrus acidity. we couldn't help but feel that alejandro had aptly named his slice of paradise and we look forward to more of the ruckus.
