Jesús is the neighbor of Ader Recinos in the mountains above La Libertad. Their upper farms are literally side by side - you could walk down a row of caturra plantings on Ader's and continue straight along the row of Jesús's. We like to show that despite almost identical growing conditions, coffee can still be distinctly different - from nutrients, farming methods, soil, and post harvest processing. Ader's will follow shortly. Buy em both. This year's coffee from Jesús shows pronounced grape-like acidity from elevation, honeydew and cream.
