Country: El Salvador
The farm is located on geothermal fields and water deposits, which naturally fertilise the sub-soils with minerals. Moreover, because of its proximity to these geothermal fields ausoles and fumaroles, are misted into the air benefiting the plant directly.
The coffee is grown under natural shade, the majority of which is composed of trees native to the area.
The Agua Caliente mill processes the coffee, pulping with rubber pulpers in which special coffees are processed. The coffee washing is done with clean water, the waters are of thermal origin from water springs, the water comes out at temperatures between 34 to 40 degrees Celsius. The coffee is dried 100% in clay brick patios.
Weed control is done manually and with low toxicity herbicides that decompose on contact with the soil so as not to affect the roots of the coffee trees with chemicals. The work on the farm is traditionally done by local people, to promote the work and development of the area, and fertilization is done with complete formulas that are determined after a nutritional study of the soil and foliar of the plants.
