Description: Finca El Aguila (‘the Eagle’) is located at 1500m – 1720 above sea level nestled between the La Ranas and El Aguila volcanoes near the town of Cantón Ojo de Agua, a municipality of Chalchuapa in the Santa Ana department of El Salvador.
The farm 63 hectares in size, 44 of which are planted with coffee with the rest dedicated to a natural reserve. has the perfect conditions to produce exceptional coffee, with high altitude, rich volcanic soil, plenty of rainfall and temperatures of 18 – 24 degrees celcius.
Today the farm is run by fifth generation coffee farmer, Ricardo Ariz. Ricardo only recently took over the farm and is relatively new to coffee. He has fond memories of being at El Aguila from an early age with his grandfather, Miguel Angelo, a passionate and curious farmer. “I think we have my grandfather to thank for the good quality varieties on this farm. I don’t think he planted them because they made financial sense, but he loved to try new things.” Ricardo’s grandfather passed away in the late 60s, and Mauricio, Ricardo’s father, took over the farm. He was very young at the time, having just finished college. Maurico managed the farm for 15 years until 1980. At this time the Civil War erupted in El Salvador, and the country saw extreme violence for next 12 years. During ‘The Lost Decade’, the farm was practically abandoned. Mauricio and his family moved to the States, and the farm was managed at arms length via engineers who visited the farm 4-5 times a year.
