Finca Bellos Horizontes is located close to the city of Santa Tecla in the La Libertad region in the South West of El Salvador. The total Finca area is 55 blocks, 47 of which are dedicated to growing coffee, the rest being forest reserve.

Predominantly dealing with Bourbon varieties grown under the shade of the avocado, allspice and pepeto trees, the finca grows and processes coffee itself, not sending their cherries to a co-op mill. For this coffee, a gourmet prep fully washed process is used with the goal of a clean cup free from defects.

The Finca was purchased in 1975 by Jose Calderon Col and his brother in law, Giner Gonzales and named it Bellos Horizontes, meaning Beautiful Horizon inspired by the finca’s view of Santa Tecla Volcano and the El Chingo Volcano in Guatemala.

This coffee is relatively nuanced and mild and you can expect notes of cocoa and apricot against a medium-intensity citric acidity.
