Puerto Arturo and El Carmencito, two small, but very productive coffee farms with a history over 150 years, owned and forged for 5 generations in the highest mountains of the Apaneca Mountain Range in tropical El Salvador. Both farms were preowned by Alvaro’s mother’s family and were known to be one of the best coffee farms in its prime time. Puerto Arturo’s name comes from Alvaro’s uncle, named Arturo.
In 2014 the farms were acquired by Karla’s late father, who was also a coffee producer on the east side of El Salvador and who fell in love with the land in Apaneca, and gave us both properties as a gift, so these farms have very strong sentimental values to us from both sides of our families.
Since 2014, we’ve turned old traditional producing family farms into a specialty coffee producing ones, by replanting 90% of them with new varieties and processes.
A 6th generation of farmers (our little sons) has started!
