THEIR STORY

Emilio and his family have been growing coffee for six generations in the volcanic hills of El Salvador. He is the founder of Cuatro M Farms, a miller and exporter of 100% single origin coffee produced in the Apaneca-Illamatepec region. Their first washing station was installed at Finca Ayutepeque where each bean can be traced back to its specific lot.
In 2005, Cuatro M expanded operations to another family owned farm, Finca El Manzano. The expansion allowed them to experiment with different processing methods such as Natural and Pulped Natural, and receive additional coffees from neighboring farms.

ON THE MAP

El Savador’s Apaneca-Llamatepec mountain range is one of Central America’s premier specialty coffee growing regions.

THE FARM

Cuatro M invests by working with farmers before, during and post-harvest through encouraging and supporting practices that increase both yields and cup quality. These are factors which require involvement years in advance, commitment and financing, from the planting of the best varieties, to the pruning, fertilization and harvesting methods for each tree, within each farm.

The perfection and delivery of quality happens in the lab managed by professionals who are trained in every aspect of specialty coffee. This encompasses green coffee grading, roasting, brewing and cupping.
