Background Details

El Salvador La Cubana Roble y Rodriguez Especial GrainPro is sourced from a family-owned farm located near the town of Apaneca within the department of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. The Dada Peña family owns and operates La Cubana, which has an ideal micro-climate for coffee cultivation because of its location in the Apaneca/Ilametepec mountain range, one of the most prestigious areas of coffee cultivation in the country. La Cubana is firmly committed to educating the children living near the farm. They donated land to the ministry of education and a primary school was built where 85 children are now enrolled. Each year, La Cubana funds school events to promote sports and culture.
