AN EXQUISITELY JUICY COFFEE FROM EL SALVADOR

About a decade ago, the Rodriguez family discovered mysterious coffee trees on their farms. The origin was unknown, but these naturally mutating trees had some resemblances of their neighboring trees, bourbon and typica. Over the years, the Rodriguez family have planted many seedlings of these trees. Our selection of Elefante is a blend of both the old (viejo) and new (nuevo) trees. Though it remains a mystery how this unique variety came to grow in Apaneca, the fruit from these trees is twice as dense, much larger, and contains up to five times more juice than its neighboring varieties. Hailing from the Roriguez family, the same producers of El Porvenir and Pacamara La Gloria, this coffee is laced with lavender floral, deep dark fruit juiciness, and cocoa, with spice complexity on the finish. Elefante is a rare opportunity to enjoy coffee from the old vines that brought us this new and exciting flavor over the years.

Cream of Their Crop

At Madcap, we believe the best coffee starts at the very beginning. We founded our company by forging relationships with the farmers who grow our coffee, learning their stories, and securing transparency and fair wages throughout our supply chain. Not only is this just the right way to do business, it also happens to lead to the best coffee, fruit to cup.

At Madcap we obsess over details. We live, breathe, and sleep coffee and are in constant pursuit of the ethereal perfect cup. That’s why we roast in-house, our team of expert obsessives lovingly bringing each bean's potential to life, unlocking flavors sealed in the depths.
