About
Blanchard’s
in El Salvador

Stephen Robertson’s first visit to El Salvador was in partnership with NCBA CLUSA - an international organization promoting agricultural cooperatives that is doing a lot of work in El Salvador, specifically around the coffee agriculture industry. He found that the reason El Salvadoran coffee isn’t as common in the US market is due to a lack of infrastructure to market and export it.

This lack of connection between the producers of El Salvador and roasters in the US leads most small producers to sell their harvests on the commodities market, where buy/sell mills are paying the lowest possible price - sometimes lower than the cost of production - to farmers, then placing the coffees on the open market at the highest possible price. Blanchard’s and Harvest continue to foster deeper relationships in El Salvador to provide market access and economic viability to smallholder farmers in the country. El Salvador is home to some of the hidden gems of the specialty coffee world.
