Roasting

We roast online orders every Monday and post them every Tuesday via Royal Mail. Get your orders in before 9am on Monday morning to ensure you have fresh coffee to drink by the weekend. If you need to get hold of some coffee outside of our roasting day then please feel free to drop us a line at info@methodroastery.com.

Best Before

Your coffee will be roasted to order and our labels always have a ‘roasted on’ date so you know when that was. For best results use from 4 to 28 days after roasting – coffee is a fresh food product, fresh coffee tastes best.

Storage

Once open, it’s best to store your coffee in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

Coffee has been produced commercially in El Salvador since the 1850s and by 1880 the country was the fourth largest producer of coffee in the World. These days El Salvador produces far less coffee, but the country does have an unusually high proportion of heirloom Bourbon trees, these flourish in the well-drained and mineral-rich volcanic soils that have the potential to produce incredibly sweet coffees. Around 90% of of the country’s coffee is shade grown, which maintains the rich biodiversity that thrives in rural El Salvador.

We were particularly drawn to the Apaneca Mountain range in the west of the country, as the coffees here have such good character. Finca Bosque Lya is the farm that we source our coffee from in this region. Finca Bosque Lya is a 96 hectare farm – 64 of which are under coffee, the remainder being left as natural rainforest. The farm was established in 1932 when Gustavo Vides Valdes named his property in honour of his newly born daughter, Lya. The farm name Bosque Lya translates to – Lya’s forest.

Bourbon is the most prevalent variety – mainly red, but there is a little orange and yellow too – though there are many other varieties grown for experimentation and diversity and these include pacamara, caturra and typica. An altitude growing range of 1,473 to 1,650 metres above sea level brings about coffees of great complexity that are sweet and lively.

    Love my coffee and always looking for something a bit different, fresh, real. A friend told me good things about these guys. Verdict…you can genuinely tell this isn’t mass market. Methods coffee is better than great, and this is my favourite…so far!
