Our  final Gesha of 2023 comes from El Salvador. Finca Los Angeles. A beautiful 23 manzana farm situated in the Ahuachapán mountain range in the west of El Salvador.

 

This farm 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 (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. This program is funded by Raices (Roots) and supported by Catholic Relief Services in El Salvador.

 

The Technical field school which is led by Sigfredo with 6 field technicians to help small to medium producers in the are by focusing on best farm practises that are restorative for the land and soil as well as beneficial for the yield and quality of the coffee. The field schoo is based at the sister farm named Finca Noruega where there is a class held twice a month for the students. Throughout the year there are 3 modules and these look to focus on the 4 R's the program have developed for soil health.

  • Right Source.
  • Right Dose.
  • Right Place.
  • Right Moment.

 

This year they have 60 students and at Finca Noruega where the technical school is based the students work the test plots where they can implement the knowledge gained in class before applying it to their own farms.

 

Finca Noruega is 43 Manzanas planted with a range of varieties from bourbon to gesha.Los AngelesSince Sigfredo took on the farm they have used no herbicides to help replenish the soil and nutrients to give a good base for growing coffee once again.

 

The farm is broken into 23 Manzanas with approximately 3000 trees in each section. The farm is beautifully divided with shade trees and wind barriers to protect the trees. The farm is managed on a day to day basis by some of the graduates from the technical school as well.

 

The coffee is selectively harvested and from here it then is taken to the wet mill and drying beds at Beneficio San Rafael located bewteen the two hills of El Pilon and Cerro Aguila at 1450 masl. In the harvest this football field becomes filled with drying beds for all the coffees that come from the farms Los Angeles and Noruega.
