Coffee: Finca La Fany

Finca La Fany, from the Silva family in El Salvador, are beans with a near cult following – and much loved by home/amateur roasters internationally. The beans are 100% Red Bourbon, and washed and honey processed (i.e., some sugary mucilage is left on the dried beans lending additional sweetness to the final cup).

It is a consistent and reliable bean that can take a wide range of roast profiles and yet still produce a balanced cup with flavour interest. One of the things I have always liked about it, though, is rarely cited: it throws its chaff early in the roast, which is particularly helpful when pan roasting.
