At Finca Bella Vista, the soils are carefully monitored, with nutritional programs in place to help the soil recover and maintain nutrients. This is done via a sustainable phytosanitary program and biologicals to introduce to the soil to improve soil microbial ecosystems. This in turn, creates healthy soil that is better able to support coffee production.
El Salvador is the smallest of the Central American nations, but do not let its diminutive size fool you. It produces exceptional coffees to a consistently high standard.
The history of coffee in El Salvador is inextricably linked to the development of the nation, itself. Introduced in the late 1880’s, coffee quickly displaced indigo as the country’s chief export, and by the 1920s, coffee accounted for 90% of all El Salvador’s exports.
Despite its small size, the country is efficient and able to maintain high yields thanks to the dedication of producers and the ideal climates for coffee production.
