Andrés Salaverría has had a passion for coffee growing since he was a child, His family has been dedicated to coffee growing for more than 100 años, with farms in the coffee growing regions of Atiquizaya, Concepción de Ataco, Jayúa and Apaneca. Andrés is the fifth generation and has been dedicated to coffee growing for 11 años. Andres remembers how he enjoyed accompanying his father to the El Molino mill every night to see how the Coffee cherries arrived to be unloaded from the day’s harvests from different Farms.He loved getting on the trucks and jumping on the piles of grapes, since then his interest has been growing. Every summer I developed temporary jobs in the family coffee company with the purpose of learning and implementing new knowledge. After graduating from university, he completed the Ernesto Illy Master’s degree in science and coffee economics, which was enriching for Andres and thus managed to form a clearer idea of what is behind the entire coffee production chain. as well as learning from different coffee producing colleagues from other parts of the world. In 2011 Andres returned to El Salvador after his preparation and then focused on the commercial, industrial and administrative part of the coffee farms, together with his father Don Jose Antonio Salaverria, who is in charge of farm management, have managed to make a good team. Your objective has always been the diversification of its products and at the same time always be on the lookout for new trends in processes in other Coffee producing countries in order to be able to replicate them from its beloved country El Salvador. Among the Farms managed by the Salaverría family are the following The San Francisco Farm, one of the most important for the family business, is not only home to a Coffee producing region, but also to a Natural forest reserve. which was donated to the National Forestry Association of El Salvador for the purpose of preserving a beautiful habitat for many exotic species of plants and animals. The San Francisco Farm is located near the town of La Majada, in the coffee growing region of Apaneca – Ilamatepec, in the district of Juayúa, Its rich volcanic soils make San Francisco an ideal place for Coffee Cultivation. At the Farm San Francisco Coffee is 100% shade-grown. Harvesting activities are carried out through selective manual harvesting, which consists of picking fully ripe cherries. Social and environmental activities play an important role in the daily activities of the farm and for the family business, which always seeks to supply the surrounding communities with health services and infrastructure for educational activities.
