Description: The Alvarez family have been growing coffee in El Salvador for over 100 years and across four generations. Their award-winning farms are located on the lush, green hills of Santa Ana, in the west of the country, where the rich volcanic soils and mild climate provide ideal conditions for growing specialty coffee. The beans which together make up El Borbollon, come from two small farms – La Reforma and Santa Maria. They are hand-picked and collected in traditional hand-woven baskets from December until March by pickers who have been specially trained to select only the best and fully mature coffee cherries.

Finca La Reforma and Finca Santa Maria were established by Rafael Alvarez Lalinde in 1892 on the rich, humid slopes of the Santa Ana Volcano. Originally from Colombia, Don Rafael immigrated into the region, bringing some of his best coffee seeds with him to begin a new legacy for coffee production. Four generations later his decedents still own and manage this pair of small neighbouring famers – originally part of this initial farm, which was broken up for inheritances – on the fertile slopes of the Santa Ana volcano.
