Background Details

The Santa Rita Farm is located on the slopes of the Ilamatepec Volcano in northern El Salvador. The coffee is 100 percent shade grown, and these important shade trees also serve as a home to a number of native exotic birds and other animals. The coffee is produced by JASAL, a family owned operation where Jose Antonio Salaverria and his sons take great pride in their meticulous attention to detail, from year-round farm management to quality control in the cupping lab, and everything in between.
