Finca La Buena Esperanza
In 1924, Amalia de Quintanilla purchased 56 hectares of land at an altitude of around 1,500 meters in the Cacahuatique Mountains in el salvador and called it “La Buena Esperanza”. The plantation features very rare clay with a high proportion of iron. It is shaded by a variety of endemic shade trees, including a large number of avocados, citrus fruits and other agricultural plants. This special soil composition and the allelopathic factors lend the coffee from this farm a unique character. Today, Andres Quintanilla is the fourth generation to manage the plantation and gives particular attention to rare coffee varieties.
