El Salvador Santa Rosa

In 1979, Jorge Raul Rivera founded the farm with his brother, Jose Roberto to produce pine resin to be used in perfumes.

When El Salvador hosted its first Cup of Excellence in 2003, he and his brother finally planted the coffee farm they had originally imagined. The brothers took advantage of this clean slate and planted Pacamara. They also retained plenty of their forest to provide the necessary shade for coffee trees in Chalatenango’s hot and dry climate. Many visitors comment on the unique landscape of this farm as most of the shade come from pines and resembles a Scandinavian forest more than a tropical, Central American coffee farm.

In 2014 Santa Rosa placed first in the Cup of Excellence giving Jorge the opportunity to better reach the international market and in 2017 Raul proved how amazing this farm can be by winning COE a second time

Jorge Paul’s son, Jorge Raul Jr. travels a lot because of coffee and was in contact with Project Origin Founder, Sasa Sestic, through email until finally meeting in person at WBC Seattle 2015. When Sasa visited Jorge in El Salvador, they discussed the possibility of creating an auction to help the producers of the area connect with international buyers. In 2016, Project Origin organised their first Best of El Salvador auction which included the participation of more than 60 producers.


Roaster's Thoughts

Pacamara is definitely a variety that is very delicate, floral and complex. Especially, when it is natural processed, its fruitiness is unlocked and open. This, with its floral aromas, enhances beautiful sensation with complex flavour profile. Santa Rosa is one of the most famous farm in the world for high quality coffees. Their pacamara is very well-known not only for its quality but also its unique tropical flavour notes.
