Las Delicias Estate farm is located in the Ilamatepec Mountain Range, in Canton Palo de Campana, one of the most emblematic areas for good quality Coffee from El Salvador. At the same time it is one of the uppermost areas of Coffee growing in El Salvador.
The farm is worked all year round based on a “protocol ” which defines all the work that will be done on the farm, depending on strategic planning of the plantation. For example, the shadow pruning method to use, the coffee pruning, the wind barriers pruning period, the renovation method defined for a 5-year period, the fertilisation formulas depending on soil analysis, the cleaning strategy. The coffee is grown in shade, which gives it a much more interesting flavour due to slower and more uniform maturation.
