El Salvador RFA El San Antonio
Situated among the Ilamatepec Mountain Range in western El Salvador, Finca San Antonio is an active coffee farm growing specialty coffee. The farm is also a nature preserve that offers tours, ecotourism, and breathtaking views. Rich drinkable spring water is abundant at the slopes of El San Antonio, contributing to a clean cup in this washed coffee.
