Finca Los Angeles
Notes: bright and floral with subtle notes of cranberry, rose, mango and caramel
Finca Los Angeles is a beautiful farm situated in the Ahuachapán mountain range in the west of El Salvador, with soils rich in volcanic and organic matter, and high moisture retention.
The farm is beautifully divided with shade trees and wind barriers for protection. The coffee is selectively harvested, and from here it is taken to the drying beds at Beneficio San Rafael. During the harvest this football field becomes filled with drying beds for all the coffees that come from Los Angeles.
Finca Los Angeles is part of the Los Naranjos group, headed by Sigfredo Corado, a retired professor of Agronomy from the National School of Agriculture. The farm is part of the ‘Renacer Program’ (meaning ‘Reborn’ in Spanish) which is a technical coffee field school and educational program for producers in the area to learn about better farm management practices. The Technical field school is led by Sigfredo, alongside 6 field technicians, established to help small to medium producers in the area by focusing on best farm practices that are restorative for the land and soil, as well as beneficial for the yield and quality of the coffees.
